A cross connection is defined as any actual or potential connection between a potable water system and any other source or system through which it is possible to introduce into the public drinking water system any used water, industrial fluid, gas or substance other than the intended potable water. Cross connections and backflow incidences in the state of Utah have resulted in dangerous highly contaminated water unexpectedly entering public drinking water systems. Irrigation water, oil, toxic boiler compounds, sewage, pesticides and other extremely dangerous contaminants have found their way into Utah public drinking water systems due to cross connections.
With residential access to pressurized irrigation in the valley comes a risk of homeowners cross connecting the irrigation system with the culinary water system. If done improperly the result could contaminate the entire drinking water system. Please have an inspection done by the Santa Clara Field Canal Company before doing so.
Backflow prevention assemblies provide protection against contamination or pollution of the public drinking water system. A backflow incident can seriously affect the quality and safety of our drinking water system. Backflow is the reverse flow of contaminated water or other substances from a water users system back into the public drinking water system. Backflow can occur if your plumbing system is physically connected to any source of contamination or pollution as simple as landscape sprinklers, hose attachments for utility sinks and garden hoses.
For questions or concerns please contact the Public Works Department at 435-656-4690.
The County Clerk’s Office has made a change in how registered voters will cast their ballots beginning with this November’s General Election. Washington County will be conducting its elections mainly by mail. Ballots will be sent out to registered voters 3 weeks before election day; in addition the county will have 6 to 7 vote centers available on election day from 7am to 8pm.
Learn more about voting by mail and other voter information at vote.utah.gov. where you can view sample ballots, find precinct information, candidate information, voter registration information and deadlines, and polling places.
The County Clerk’s Office is located at 197 East Tabernacle in St. George. Phone # 435-634-5712.
Because regulators and authorities cannot monitor all storm drains and water bodies at once, they rely on the public to keep them informed of water polluters. Community hotlines provide a means for concerned citizens and agencies to contact the appropriate authority when they see water quality problems. To report spills, dumping emergencies, violations or suspicious activities please call the DCSWC Hot Line at 435-634-5730 or (435)-673-6712, the main City phone number and after hours number. In most cases an investigator will visit and assess the problem site.
