Cross Connection Program

Waupun Utilities’ Cross Connection Control Program, required by Federal and State laws, is in place to help eliminate possible contamination of the public water distribution system ensuring our drinking water is clean and safe.

A cross connection may occur when a pipe designed to carry safe (potable) drinking water is connected to a pipe containing unsafe (non-potable) water or other liquid material. The non-potable water or liquid has the potential to siphon, or backflow into the potable system, causing a threat for contamination. This can be as simple as a garden hose that is submerged in a swimming pool or bathtub filled past the overflow drain. Other examples are supply lines connected to boilers, process equipment, or bottom-fed tanks.

Utilities are required to have a certain number of inspections completed each year. Inspections are randomly selected based on the last inspection year. We have teamed with HydroCorp Inc. to complete the cross connection inspections for residential, commercial and industrial customers on our behalf. When you receive notice in the mail of the scheduled inspection, please ensure that you are present for the inspection. If the scheduled date and time does not work for you, please contact the number listed on the letter to reschedule a time that will work for you.

Questions regarding inspections can be directed to HydroCorp Inc. at 844-493-7641 between the hours of 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact Waupun Utilities at 920-324-7920 between our office hours of 8:00 am - 4:00 pm Monday - Friday.
