The Cross Connection Control Advisory Committee of San Diego County met for its regular quarterly meeting on April 14, 2016. We were graciously hosted by the City of San Diego Cross Connection Department. Topics of discussion included reports from AWWA, ABPA, IAPMO, USC Foundation, Palomar College and Cuyamaca College. In addition, Paul Molissani demonstrated his EcosConnect software.
The Field Inspection Report was given by Felix of San Diego Water. He described the make up of the Cross Connection Control department, which has 8 Specialists, I Program Administrative Assistant and a couple of trainees. Together the team supervises a cross connection control program encompassing 33,000 privately owned and 2,300 city-owned backflow prevention assemblies. Felix also described some of the changes being enacted within the department to further improve and streamline their function.
All in all, it was an informative meeting. Thanks to all in attendance!
