The Village of Pioneer is dedicated to protecting and maintaining a high quality public water supply. Backflow prevention and cross-connecting control are two of the protection efforts utilized.
The Ohio EPA defines cross-connection and backflow as follows:
A cross-connection is defined as any physical connection created between a possible source of contamination and any drinking water system piping.
Backflow is defined as the flow through a cross-connection from a possible source of contamination back into the drinking water system. It occurs when a cross connection is created and a pressure reversal, either as backsiphonnage or backpressure, occurs in the water supply piping.
For more information, please consult the following pamphlet from the Ohio EPA
