Cross Connection Control Program

The Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Agency Public Water System
Supervision Program requires public water systems to protect their water
supplies from contamination by implementing a cross-connection control
program and to have a backflow assemblies to be tested annually. The
scope of a comprehensive cross-connection control program must include
provisions for the protection of the drinking water supply through the
installation of appropriate backflow prevention assemblies at the water
user's connection where a hazard or potential hazard to the water supply is
identified by the public water system.
Cross Connection and Backflow Prevention Program
Backflow Assembly Tester

All backflow prevention assemblies will need to be tested by
a certified backflow assembly tester annually. A copy of the
test results should be submitted and mailed to our PWSSP
office. It will be the responsibility of the owner/operator to
ensure the testing is conducted annually and the results
reported to PWSSP. PWSSP may inspect these devices and
request to view the test results during a sanitary survey
inspection.

The type of backflow protection required must be
commensurate with this degree of hazard that exists on the
water user's premises. Navajo EPA regulations identified the
minimum types of backflow protection based on the
identified hazard or potential hazard.

Only those persons that have met the requirements of the
Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Agency Public Water
System Supervision Program under the
NNPDWR §2000.
Required to be currently as a cross connection control program specialist
by the California-Nevada Section of the American Water Works
Association  or an organization with equivalent certification requirements
acceptable to the Director, unless the Director approves an alternative
person based o its review of system, size, types of water users, treatment,
distribution systems, and any previous hazards.
Certified Backflow Assembly Registration

All Backflow Testers are required to register and submit application with
appropriate documents and fee payable to NNEPA-PWSSP. Upon
approval by the Director, a Backflow Tester Identification card will be
issued. All Registered Testers will be recognized as certified by an
approved cross connection control program having met the requirements
as established to test within the jurisdiction of the Navajo Nation.
