Backflow

Overview


The City of Marysville along with Backflow Solutions, Inc. (BSI) manages our Backflow Prevention program. The intent of this program is to protect the public water system from any potential cross contamination.

Requirements


Backflow devices are required on all industrial and commercial accounts and any account that has an irrigation system. It is the city’s responsibility to ensure that devices are installed where needed, that annual testing is being conducted, and that all documents are properly filed according to Ohio EPA standards.

Testing Reminder Notices


BSI will send out notices to those who utilize a Backflow Prevention device reminding of the required testing. The results of the test must be documented and submitted (online) to BSI as required.

Failure to Comply


Failure to comply with the program may result in termination of service.
