LCWSA Backflow Prevention and Cross-Connection Control Program


Lycoming County Water and Sewer Authority maintains Rules and Regulations for the health and safety of our customers.  As part of the public water Rules and Regulations, LCWSA has a backflow prevention program to help eliminate possible contamination of the public water distribution system.

There are two required components of the program: (1) site survey and (2) routine testing of backflow prevention devices.  LCWSA will be working with property owners and facility managers to conduct these surveys.

The first step is to identify the type and location of backflow prevention devices maintained within each home and facility.  Please contact LCWSA if you need assistance in determining the type and location of your backflow prevention device.
