Class Overview:  This class is designed to educate Water Utility staff members involved with a Residential Cross Connection (CCC) Program and assist in improving cost efficiencies.  This 6-hour session includes a detailed review of the basic components of a MI DEQ compliant CCC Program and includes a cross connection control packet with code resources.  Understanding the relevant rules and regulations, which shape a Cross Connections Program, is essential.  A cost-effective CCC Survey process relies on accurate and consistent documentation of each backflow prevention device or method.  Code references will be clarified and “how-to make corrective action requirements” will be explained for common Residential type Cross Connections.  Tracking program activities and data will be discussed as well as press releases and public education materials.

Objective:  Provide a better understanding of methods and resources available to enable effective Residential Cross Connection Inspections and Surveys.
