The Water and Sewer Division is the entity charged with providing safe drinking water to Novi residents and businesses. State and Federal Laws (Safe Drinking Water Acts) require that the City of Novi protect water supply to the customer’s tap. The Plumbing Code, Michigan Residential Code, and the City of Novi Code of Ordinances also require that the City verify that cross connections on private plumbing systems do not pose a contamination risk to the public water supply through the enforcement of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) Law and Rules for Cross Connection Control.
As part of the cross connection control program, the Water and Sewer Division will be performing inspections of residential, commercial, and industrial cross connections to ensure that backflow prevention devices are in place, and present on the plumbing systems. This may include testable and non-testable devices. Testable devices must be tested.
Consumers also share in the responsibility for protecting the water supply by properly maintaining their plumbing systems in a safe condition.
