As mandated by the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act and the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals-Office of Public Health (LDHH-OPH), Beau Chene Public Works Staff and Compliance Testing and Remediation personnel will begin residential Cross-Connection Control Surveys on Thursday, June 2, 2016. These Surveys will require brief access to your outdoor property in order to identify possible sources of cross-connection of Beau Chene’s potable water system with water of unknown quality. The Surveys will identify pools, lawn irrigation systems, hot tubs, garden fountains, and hose bib vacuum breakers at each residence. Existing backflow prevention methods will be evaluated for proper installation of backflow assemblies as required by LDHH-OPH and the Louisiana State Plumbing Code.
The initial Surveys will include residences on the following streets:
Mako Nako Drive
Public Works staff will “door to door” contact each resident on the above listed streets Thursday prior to the actual survey. “Door-Knockers” will be left if a resident is not at home.
