Water Survey Regarding Cross Connections and Service Lines

Water Survey Regarding Cross Connections and Service Lines The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) requires that all water systems in the State have an effective Cross Connection Control Program. Cross connections within the public water supply are a serious concern, as they can allow contaminants or pollutants to enter the public water system through what is called “backflow”. Backflow occurs when a drop-in water pressure causes your water to flow in the opposite direction. This can allow contaminated or polluted water to flow back into your drinking water. Given the IEPA regulations and the dangers that exist from unprotected cross connections, it is necessary to establish and maintain an effective cross connection control program to protect both the integrity of Franklin Park’s water supply as well as to protect our water customers.

In order to provide the best program possible, the Village of Franklin Park has contracted with Backflow Solutions, Inc. to inspect our water supply. Backflow Solutions, Inc. is a professional service company fully devoted to helping public and private water systems with development, implementation and maintenance of cross connection control program. Also, the Village is required by law to determine what type of service lines exists for all connections in our Village. If you are unsure about how to determine if you have a lead or copper water service line, there is easy to use information to help  you can call 847-671-8252.

Please complete the survey recently mailed and return it to the Village. You can also complete it on-line at www.bsiprograms.com/surveys. If you have questions regarding cross connections, call 800-414-4990.
