 Backflow Committee
Mike Eisenhauer, Chair

The Backflow Committee is dedicated to helping each and every water system in Illinois plan, develop, enact, implement, and enforce an effective cross-connection control program. The regulations that outline all water systems requirements to adopt and administer a cross-connection control program have been virtually unchanged for almost 35 years. What once may have seemed like a monumental undertaking to actually start a comprehensive backflow program today can be accomplished with only a minor investment on the part of the water system. Knowledge, expertise, experience, and technical advancements gained over the last 35 years have made it almost a no brainer for all water systems to effectively administer their backflow program and to help ensure a safe and adequate potable water supply for their consumers. The members of the ISAWWA Backflow Committee are some of the most experienced and knowledgeable cross-connection control experts in the country and are ready to help. All you need to do is ask. As we come to the close of another year, now is the time to take a serious look at your current cross-connection and backflow prevention program and ask yourself whether your program has done and is doing all of the elements necessary to ensure that safe and adequate water supply to all of your customers. If your answer is yes, then congratulations to you for doing the right thing; and if your answer is no, then please contact the ISAWWA Backflow Committee and we will provide whatever assistance is within our power to provide.
