Cross Connection Program

A Cross Connection is an arrangement of piping which could allow undesirable water, sewage, or chemical solutions to enter your drinking (potable) water system as a result of backflow. Cross Connections with potable piping systems have resulted in numerous cases of illness and even death. Historically, Cross Connections have been one of the most serious public health threats to a drinking water supply system, and many times are present in a residential water system.

If you have received a letter in the mail pertaining to the Howell Cross Connection program, here is the link to Michigan Plumbing and Mechanical Contractors Association.  Through this link, you can locate a Livingston County Area Plumber certified in back flow prevention.
