Cross Connection Control Program
When cross connections or faulty back flow prevention devices exist within the public water system, the purity of the public's drinking water is compromised. The City of Hudsonville is required by State law to ensure that commercial and industrial facilities within the city are in compliance with State requirements for water system usage. These regulations prevent the use of cross connections or faulty back flow prevention devices within the public water system. The Hudsonville City Commission recently approved a contract with Hydro Designs, Inc. to inspect all commercial and industrial facilities within the Hudsonville service area.
The City will contact in advance all commercial and industrial facilities to arrange for inspections. Inspections started in January with municipal buildings and schools. Inspections are prioritized based on the degree of hazard. Although Hydro Designs, Inc. will be administering the program, the Hudsonville Department of Public Works will be actively involved. The department is striving to eliminate cross connections in order to protect the water we drink. If you have any questions, please call 616-669-0200.
