All public water systems are required to develop and implement a cross-connection control (CCC) program per the requirements contained in Florida Administrative Code (FAC) 62-555.360 section (2). The purpose is to protect water quality by preventing the backflow of water from a customer’s plumbing into the public water system.
Backflow is the reversal of the flow of water created by a difference in water pressures that causes water to flow back into the distribution pipes of a potable water supply.
