Backflow Letter, Uh-Oh

Updated: May 15, 2018



What to do if you receive a backflow bylaw compliance letter asking to have your backflow checked?


Different Ontario municipalities have sent letters to property owners, if you received one of these letters please keep reading.


You have not been randomly selected, these letters have been sent to property owners to help protect our municipal drinking water. After the Walkerton water crisis which cost an estimated 155 million dollars the government made Ninety-three recommendations to ensure disaster like these never happens again.


Backflow and Cross Connection bylaws might as well be hieroglyphics for property owners. Although there are great resources providing details about your responsibilities, it is probably new territory for you. Markham Backflow can help you address and understand the municipal bylaws.
