the June Meeting minutes and the July Newsletter to the website.
out e-mail to resident distribution list regarding the Backflow Prevention
Assembly test requirement and MVMA’s efforts to coordinate residents in
order to get a reduced charge from $50 to $35 for individual test if 30-
40 residents go together to use the same backflow tester. To date we have received close to 140
replies, 95% of whom wish to be part of a group for the reduced rate. I contacted Chris Wilson, coordinator of
the program for Water District #111 and he said letters went out to their
customers whom they could identify having sprinkler systems or some other
system which drew water off the normal house supply informing the resident
of the requirement for an annual inspection of the back flow valve. This is a state requirement. Residents who do not have back flow
control valve will eventually have to have one installed and undergo the
annual inspection. If a resident
has a sprinkler system but it is not used, it is possible to have the
system capped and approved by Water District #111. The annual inspection will not be
required in that case. These
residents need to contact Water District #111 if they wish to go this
