What is the Backflow Prevention Program

As of March 2018, the City of Ottawa, Backflow Prevention Program (BFP Program) is in effect. The City of Ottawa’s Backflow Prevention Program protects drinking water quality by ensuring the appropriate installation and inspection of devices that prevent contaminated water from flowing back into the city’s water distribution system.

Mandatory survey testing

The City will begin notifying affected property owners of the requirement to submit an initial survey. Depending on the outcome of the survey, the City of Ottawa will determine what device, if any, needs to be installed within a certain time frame.

A survey will be required every 5 years to make sure the building does not change classification.
