Ottawa Pushing For Backflow Preventers

Ottawa

“Thousands of large buildings in Ottawa, including hospitals, schools, businesses and apartment complexes, should be required to install “backflow prevention devices” to protect the quality of drinking water, the city has recommended.

The devices will cost between $500 and $20,000 per building, with building owners paying the cost.  The staff recommendation to change the city’s water bylaws will bring Ottawa into line with 30 other municipalities across the province, including Toronto, Hamilton and London.” Ottawa Citizen.
