Irrigation Backflow Compliance Survey

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The City of Fort Lauderdale Public Works Department needs your help verifying irrigation backflow prevention assembly at your property.

For the health and safety of our drinking water, the installation and certification of a backflow prevention assembly is required for the dedicated irrigation service connection according to the State of Florida Administrative Code (Chapter 62-555.360) and City of Fort Lauderdale Municipal Code of Ordinances (Chapter 28-153, 28-155). Backflow prevention assemblies will prevent cross-connection events (back pressure, back siphonage) from occurring and creating a hazar to the municipal drinking water system.

 Type of backflow (PVB, AVB, RPZ, other), make, model, and serial number if available, or select “No”, if there is currently no irrigation backflow prevention assembly at the property.  Scroll to bottom of this page to view example pictures of the different types of Backflows.
