Backflow Prevention/Cross-Connection Program
In order for the Village of Glendale Heights to comply with IEPA and Illinois Plumbing Code regulations, all business and residential homes with an RPZ or other testable device for backflow prevention are required to have it inspected yearly by a licensed Cross-Connection Control Device Inspector (CCDI) in backflow testing. The Village Cross-Connection Control Program is designed to eliminate drinking water contamination caused by cross-connections and backflow. This is required of all public water supplies.
The Village of Glendale Heights has contracted with Backflow Solutions, Inc. (BSI) to administer the Village's cross-connection control/backflow tracking program. The Cross-Connection Control Device Inspector (CCDI) is required to submit your backflow test results online via BSI Online's secure website. All backflow test reports for the Village must be entered using the BSI online system.
For assistance please contact Backflow Solutions, Inc (BSI) at 800.414.4990 or the Village of Glendale Heights Public Works Department at 630.260.6040.
