Canton Township hires firm to perform cross connection system testing
Canton Township residents may see some unexpected visitors to their property during the next few weeks as part of an inspection of the municipal water system.
Township officials have agreed to a contract with Hydrocorp to perform residential cross connection control inspections throughout Canton. The inspection is required by the Safe Drinking Water Act and administered by the state Great Lakes and Energy department which has instituted rules to protect drinking water and to prevent cross connections that may contaminate public drinking water systems. State law requires all communities to implement a program for removal of all existing cross connections and the prevention of all future cross connections.
