Backflow prevention assemblies are subject to corrosion that may lead to failure. Annual testing of backflow prevention assemblies is required to ensure proper functioning of the assemblies and the safety of our water supply.
- Assemblies must be tested annually by a certified backflow prevention assembly tester.
- If the assembly fails, it must be repaired or replaced and tested again to ensure it functions properly.
- Upon successful completion of the test a JEA Backflow Assembly Test Report must be submitted to the JEA Cross Connection Control program. Certain vendors will submit reports to JEA for their customers.
- All costs associated with backflow prevention assembly maintenance are the responsibility of the customer.
