Cross-Connection Control & Backflow Prevention


The Backflow Program with PRWA provides backflow tester and assembly repair training, certification, and management level training for beginning and maintaining a backflow program in your water utility as required by the PA DEP Public Water Supply Manual.  The PA DEP Public Water Supply Manual, Part VII states that "Inspections, tests, and overhaul of backflow prevention devices shall be made at the expense of the water consumer, and shall be performed by the public water supplier or a person certified to inspect, test, and overhaul backflow prevention devices."

PRWA sponsors backflow tester training and certification through Associate Member, Ralph Yanora.  Ralph is an expert in the cross connection control field, and has managed the PRWA backflow training program for many years, and provides training through PA Water Specialties Company.  Learn more about Ralph at WWW.PAWSC.COM or better yet take one of his classes!
