Who requires RPZ or Backflow Preventer testing?
The Illinois Plumbing Code requires that a backflow prevention device be installed on all (Commercial and Residential) irrigation systems to protect the potable water supply.

The law not only requires the use of backflow prevention devices, but also that the devices be tested once per year.

Contact Information:
Illinois Dept. of Public Health, (217) 524-0791
Illinois EPA Division of Public Water Supply Field Operations, (217) 782-1020

State law also requires that the local municipality provide oversight that all requirements are being met.
