PURPOSE OF MANUAL

This manual provides guidance to all professionals working with the potable water supply on the recommended procedures and practices for developing, operating, and maintaining an efficient and effective cross-connection control program. The manual also provides insight into the basic areas that should be addressed to ensure that public water system connections are made safely; that those connections will be operated and maintained to ensure water quality; and that public water suppliers have the basic knowledge needed to assist in this effort. The purpose of any such program is to reduce the risk of contamination or pollution of the public water system.

A cross-connection is an actual or potential connection between any part of a potable water system and an environment that would allow substances to enter the potable water system. Those substances could include gases, liquids, or solids, such as chemicals, water products, steam, water from other sources (potable or nonpotable), and any matter that may change the color or taste of water or add odor to water.
