Water System Operations

We oversee all aspects of your water system, including operations and maintenance, treatment, distribution, repairs, water quality sampling, and regulatory reporting. Our operators are certified in backflow prevention, cross connection operations, Grade T2-T4 in water treatment, and Grade D2-D3 in distribution operations.

Backflow Testing

Backflow preventers protect drinking water systems from any possible contamination from the customer side of the service. Required annual testing ensures that drinking water is safe for the public. We offer complete backflow services, including annual testing, installation, repair, compliance assistance, and consultation.

Cross Connection Surveys

If your property has a potential cross-connection, you may be required to have a backflow prevention system and have it tested annually. Our team keeps you in compliance and contaminants out of your drinking water.

Water Quality Testing

We provide a wide range of water quality sampling for drinking water including well and groundwater sampling for residential and municipal systems, and lead sampling in schools. Our testing protocols adhere to stringent regulations, while protecting the health and well-being of the community.
