The Village has elected to move forward with an eco-friendly online cross-connection control (backflow preventer) tracking program. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) requires every water supplier to develop and implement a comprehensive cross-connection control program for the elimination of existing cross-connections and prevention and protection from all future cross-connections.

Backflow preventers may be found at several locations on your water systems. Typically, most commercial customers will have backflow preventers just after the water meter and also on wet fire protection systems. They may also have lawn irrigation systems that require backflow protection. Note - there may be other water connections throughout commercial or industrial facilities requiring backflow protection.

Residential backflow preventers may exist or be required on lawn irrigation systems, wet fire protection systems, swimming pool fills, water features, etc.

Backflow preventers are the property and responsibility of the water customer for annual testing and maintenance. The water customer must contract with a licensed tester to perform the required annual tests. Most local plumbers are certified to test backflow preventers.

The contractor hired to implement and oversee Lincolnshire's backflow program is BSI. A national firm that specializes in cross-connection control management. BSI can be reached at 888-966-6050 with any questions.

The Lincolnshire Cross Connection Control Program is designed to safeguard public health. We ask for your cooperation with our program, its enforcement, and any requests for information that may be requested from BSI or Village Staff. Please visit BSI Backflow Academy page to educate yourself on all things related to backflow. To view or submit test results, visit BSI website.
