Backflow Prevention & Cross Connection Control Refresher Course (#2021-14 & #2021-20)

This class will explain what a cross connection is and what effect back-siphonage and back pressure can have on your system. We will examine a cross connection control program as a necessary tool for controlling the possibility of contamination by cross connections. How do hydraulics affect your water and wastewater system? By understanding hydraulics and cross connection control, you can develop and implement a cross-connection control program for your system. New test procedures for each type of backflow prevention device and MA DEP regulations will be discussed.

This class will meet the requirements for recertification of Massachusetts testers license.
