Peel’s Backflow Prevention by-law
In place since 2017, the Backflow Prevention by-law ensures the protection of our drinking water by stopping the backflow of contaminated water from private plumbing into our municipal drinking water.
The bylaw applies to all industrial, commercial and institutional facilities in Peel, as well as multi-residential homes and single homes over 600 m2.
Contact us at anytime if you have questions regarding your property.
