Water Cross-Connection Control Program

The Water Department administers the Cross-Connection Control Program (CCCP) set forth by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Colorado Primary Drinking Water Regulations, 5 CCR 1002-11, Section 11.39 for backflow prevention and cross-connection control rule (. This program helps protect the public system from contamination due to a backflow event and to protect the drinking water quality.

  1. Cross-Connection Control PROGRAM

Cross-Connection Control Program (CCCP) prevents waterborne diseases and contaminants from entering the Town’s distribution system and thus the water we drink. The aim is to protect the Town and its consumers from water-using facilities which could possibly harm the quality and safety of the water supply by backflow conditions through cross connections. More exactly, CCCP is intended to prevent delivered water - water that has passed beyond the Town’s distribution system and into your private plumbing system - from reentering (backflowing) the public water system and being delivered to other consumers.
