ORDINANCE NO. 602

CROSS CONNECTIONS AND BACKFLOW PREVENTION

The City Council of the City of Glencoe ordains:
Section 1: Chapter 203B of the Glencoe Municipal Code is established to read in its entirety as follows:
203B The City of Glencoe hereby establishes the following Specifications for Cross Connections and Backflow Prevention.
203B.01 Background: The United States Congress enacted the Safe Drinking Water act (PL 93¬532) into law on December 16, 1974. Minnesota achieved primacy for the Safe Drinking Water Act in 1976. Minnesota State Statutes place responsibility for compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act on the water purveyor through the Department of Health. The Safe Drinking Water Act and its regulations cover all potable water systems and states that "minimum protection should include programs that result in the prevention of health hazards, such as cross connections."
203B.02 Purpose: The purpose of this specification is:
To carry out the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (PL 93532) and the Minnesota Department of Health chapters 4720 and 4714.
To protect the municipal potable water supply of the City of Glencoe, Minnesota from the possibility of contamination or pollution of the potable water system(s) under the direct authority of the City of Glencoe.
To promote the elimination or control of existing cross connections, actual or potential, between the customers' potable water system(s) and another environment containing substance(s).
To provide for the maintenance of a continuing Program of Cross Connection Control which will systematically and effectively prevent the contamination or pollution of all potable water system(s) under the direct authority of the City of Glencoe.
The complete ordinance is on file in the office of the City Administrator.
Adopted the 16th day of April, 2018.
