Cross Connection Control Surveys

Backflow Prevention Services, LLC offers cross connection control surveying services to commercial, industrial, and municipal clients. Louisiana Revised Statute 40:4.12 requires certain industrial customers to have cross connection surveys performed every five (5) years.  BPS surveys target both isolation and containment protection at a facility to identify potential and actual cross connections. Backflow prevention assemblies present at the site are noted and recommendations of appropriate backflow prevention devices are then made for all unprotected cross connections in accordance with the Louisiana Code.
