Backflow Prevention Device Requirements Video
The New York City DEP has produced an informational video on backflow prevention device requirements. The video is aimed at instructing property owners and managers and business owners on the need for the devices and how they protect the City’s water supply from contamination. All properties and businesses that have a potential to release contaminated water or chemicals into the City’s water supply must have a device installed on all water service lines serving their properties. The video was developed and produced in conjunction with inform NYC Business and NYC Media in the Mayor’s Office.
