Backflow Prevention Information
CROSS-CONNECTION CONTROL PROGRAM TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY
Any unprotected connection to the water system causing the flow of water or other liquids, gases, mixtures or substances into the distributing pipes can potentially contaminate the potable water supply. By-pass arrangements, jumper connections, removable sections, and swivel or changeover devices can cause this problem.
The District requires Cross-Connection Protection Devices whenever back-flow protection has been found necessary. The District requires the water user to install an approved backflow prevention device, at the customer’s expense, before new service is granted.
Reference the District Ordinance Division XI for details on this requirement. Contact us for technical drawings.
Water Conservation Information
Reduce Your Bill by Conserving Water
Conserving water and eliminating water leaks will save you money. The District no longer has a leak rate available. It was determined that by offering a leak rate, the District may be sending a conflicting message which does not promote conservation
The District has a long history of policies, programs and projects promoting water conservation and improving the efficiency of the water system. Read more below:
What is the District doing?
In 1978, the District began conservation efforts by issuing water conserving fixtures to residents. Since that time, the District’s continued conservation efforts such as the water audit and leak detection program have led to great success. This success is evidenced by a 26% reduction in per capita consumption since 2006 (state goal is 20%). Read more information about the District’s history of conservation efforts here.
What can you do?
In June 2001 the District enacted a Water Conservation Ordinance. While many of the items in the Ordinance apply to a water emergency, several water conserving practices are outlined. Installing low flow fixtures will collectively reduce water demand in Squaw Valley. For more information please read the Water Conservation FAQs or refer to the District Water Code.
Using native and drought tolerant species in landscaping and fine tuning automatic irrigation systems will reduce water use. Contact us for a free copy of Home Landscaping Guide for Lake Tahoe and Vicinity or check the Tahoe Resource Conservation District website for great landscaping ideas.
