Cross Connection Control Program/Backflow Prevention:
Backflow prevention of non-potable cross connections is an important aspect of protecting the potable water supply and ensuring public health and safety. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) requires that commercial, industrial, and multi-family properties perform annual tests on all backflow devices. To accomplish this goal, Town of Crested Butte has created a Cross Connection Control Program through its town code that allows town staff to survey all affected properties for potential cross connections, requires installation of appropriate backflow devices, and demands compliance on annual testing of all devices. Non-compliant properties may face penalties. Please see Town Code (Chapter 13, Article 3) for additional details.
