Town Council Adopts Cross-Connection Control Program

Passed upon final approval and adopted on the second reading during the March 4 Town Council meeting is Ordinance No. 2019-155, an ordinance amending Chapter 13 of the Johnstown Municipal Code to include Article VIII concerning adoption of a Cross-Connection Control Program.

The purpose of the Cross-Connection Control Program is to protect the Town’s public potable water supply from contamination or pollution resulting from backflow into the public water system, promote the elimination or control of existing cross-connections between potable and non-potable water systems, provide for the maintenance of a continuing program of cross-connection control and authorize the installation of backflow prevention devices when appropriate. Currently, backflow requirements apply only to commercial businesses and multi-family units.
