Cross-Connection Control Program

Cross-Connection Control Program Overview
The Town of Georgetown is making improvements to protect the safety of drinking water. Here's why.
A cross-connection is an actual or potential connection between the safe drinking water (potable) supply, and a source of contamination or pollution. Cross-connections can result in a hazardous event known as backflow, which can draw those contaminants into your drinking water supply.

Delaware's Department of Health Code 4462 prohibits hazardous interconnections to public water systems and requires all public water systems development a comprehensive Cross-Connection Control Program.
