Providence Water Cross-Connection Control Program

     Safe drinking water is a scientific, budgetary, and emotional issue, and the need for cost effective services coupled with a stringent quality assurance program cannot be overstated. Cross-connections between water supplies and non-potable sources of contamination represent one of the most significant threats to health in the water supply industry. This program is therefore designed to maintain the safety and potability of the water in the system by preventing the introduction of any foreign liquids, gases, and other substances, other than water from the intended sources, to provide protection from actual or potential cross-connections.

     This program derives its authority from: The Federal Safe Drinking Water Act requires that the water purveyor has the primary responsibility for preventing water from unapproved sources, or any other substances, from entering the public potable water system. This intent is further clarified in the Rhode Island General Law Section 46-13-22 (Cross-Connection Control) and The Rhode Island Health Department Rules and Regulations Pertaining to Drinking Water, Section 9.4 (Cross-Connection Control), which are hereby incorporated by reference.
