The purpose of this chapter for the Department of Public Works of the town is as follows:
(A) Protect the public potable water supply of the town against actual or potential contamination (i.e., cross-connections, backflow, backsiphonage) by isolating and containing, within the consumer's premises or private property, contamination or pollution that has occurred or may occur because of some uncontrolled (i.e., undiscovered or unauthorized) cross-connection on the consumer's premises or private property back into the public water supply.
(B) Eliminate or control existing cross- connections, both actual and potential, (backflow, backsiphonage or any other source of water or process water used for any purpose whatsoever) which might jeopardize the potability of the public water supply system of the town.
(C) Establish and maintain a continuing program of cross-connection control and inspection which will systematically and effectively prevent the contamination or pollution, either actual or potential, of all potable water systems connected to the town's public water supply system.
(D) Control cross-connections (i.e., backflow and backsiphonage) through cooperation between the town and the town's customers (consumers). Responsibilities and duties of each will be set forth in this chapter and their applicable regulations.
