BY-LAW NUMBER 10-2017

Property Owner’s Responsibilities

Property owners will receive a letter similar to the one shown below requesting a Cross-Connection Survey be completed for the facility within 90 days.

If any backflow preventers are currently installed and due for testing, these will have to be tested at time of survey and all reports submitted together. 

Contact us at anytime if you have questions regarding your facility.

Cross-Connection Survey & Testing

You may request a quote for a required Cross-Connection Survey  and Backflow Testing at your facility. We will need to know approximate square footage of facility, address, and a brief description of facility use (warehouse, manufacturing, retail, restaurant, etc.). Let us know if you are aware of any backflow preventers currently installed that require testing.

Backflow Installations

Once the Survey and Test Reports have been submitted, Peel Region will review and send a second letter requesting the property owner rectify any issues identified in the Survey Report. This usually includes installing one or more backflow preventers as required to comply with the Ontario Building Code and By-law number 10-2017.

If you have had a survey completed, you may contact us to provide you with a quote for the required backflow installations and to rectify any other deficiencies outlined in the Survey Report.

All backflow preventer installations require a permit application which must include a site plan, engineered drawing(s) and letter of commitment. All backflow preventers must be tested after installation.
