CURRENT EVENTS

Cross Connection Control Program Information

Thomas Township is required by Michigan State Law to eliminate possible contamination into the public water system due to the inadvertent and accidental introduction of chemicals and materials that are widely used in today’s homes and businesses.  This program, known as Cross Connection Control, is multifaceted and uses education, site inspections and water backflow device installation and testing as its cornerstones.  Many causes of drinking water contamination are traced to cross connections between a water system and another non-potable water source.  A good example is a connection between your home and an auxiliary water system, (like a well); fire connections, water powered sump pumps, an underground pool fill system or an irrigation and lawn sprinkler system.  Backflow prevention devices prevent the possibility of water backflow or back-shiphonage into the public system should there be a large water demand such as a water main break or an emergency condition requiring large volumes of water, like a fire.  Backflow prevention devices are mechanical in nature and require periodic testing to make sure that they will protect your home or business when needed.  Devices must be tested every three years and Thomas Township will notify you when your device needs to be tested by mail.
