Backflow Prevention Requirements

If you have an underground sprinkler system, fire sprinkler system, swimming pool, or other similar scenerios - it is required that you have a Backflow Prevention Device installed. The backflow preventer keeps water from backing through the water system into your drinking water from your irrigation system. Because of this requirement, a certified inspector must inspect this device annually.

The City of Norwalk has contracted with Backflow Solutions, Inc. or BSI Online to assist with State required cross-connection/backflow tracking regulations. BSI helps water purveyors by sending notifications, assists with customer service inquiries, and manages required data on behalf of the City of Norwalk. BSI Online will serve as the primary point of contact for the program and can be contacted below:
