The City of Vaughan Proposed Backflow Prevention By-law

The City of Vaughan has a proposed Backflow Prevention By-law requiring existing and new industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) buildings, as well as mixed-use, multi-use and multi-residential properties have a backflow preventer installed on their water service connection.

Property Owner’s Responsibilities

To help businesses in the installation of water backflow devices, the City’s Water Backflow Implementation Program will begin in 2018. Requirements for property owners to install a backflow prevention device will be phased in over a seven- to 10-year timeframe.

The City of Vaughan has provided some FAQ’s for property owners on their website. Click the link below for details or contact us for more information.
