Backflow Prevention

PID takes great care to ensure the water delivered to your home is clean and healthful. To keep our water safe, PID may require customers use backflow prevention methods at their point of service.  

Backflow is a reverse flow of water (or other substances) from an uncontrolled source back into the public water distribution system. A backflow prevention assembly is designed to prevent water from flowing backward into the public water system.

Important: If you are requesting water be turned on at your property after the Camp Fire, you must request PID install an Interim-Water Backflow Device. The fee for the device is dependent on the device size and may be reimbursable by your insurance.
