What is the law?

Ohio Administrative Code 3745-95 requires the county to protect the public water system from cross-connections and prevent backflow situations. 

If a customer is found to have a potential or actual cross-connection contamination hazard, the customer will be required to eliminate the hazard and/or install an appropriate backflow prevention device at the plumbing's point of entry into the premises and/or at the hazard.
