City of El Dorado Ordinance #1586, passed in July 1999, requires any water customer of El Dorado Water Utilities, who has a lawn irrigation system, to have a backflow prevention device installed in their system.
This device is necessary to prevent non-potable water from flowing into the potable water system.
The ordinance also requires that these devices are tested annually by a certified back-flow assembly tester to verify that they are working properly. This testing will be at the customer’s expense.
By December 31 of each calendar year, a copy of the test results should be sent to:
C/O El Dorado Water Utilities
P.0. Box 1587
El Dorado, AR 71731
Failure to comply with this ordinance can result in water service being discontinued until compliance has been verified.
