Alberta Public Safety – Backflow Prevention Enforcement

Caution TapeThe Canadian Prairie Chapter of the Irrigation association recently sent a letter to Alberta Public Safety requesting that the public be informed about the required codes when installing and connecting in-ground irrigation systems to residential and commercial properties. We are concerned about some contractors not following Alberta and Canadian codes when installing backflow devices. This causes lost business for contractors who do work to code, as well as jeopardising the health of the public. We are also asking for provincial fines and enforcement being applied to these contractors.  The following letter was sent to the government for their review.
