Backflow Prevention and Cross Connection Control Policy

Council is committed to preventing the possibility of backflow of contaminated substances into Council's water supply system, which if occurred, could result in sickness and in some cases, death. Backflow is the reverse flow of waters or other liquids from a potentially polluted source into the town’s water supply.

Coffs Harbour as the supplier of water to the public undertakes to provide safe drinking water to the consumer’s property. Council ensures this by protecting the systems from contamination or pollution. This details council's commitment to backflow prevention and cross connection control.
