Cross Connection Backflow Prevention

What is Cross Connection?
A cross connection is an arrangement of piping that could allow undesirable water, sewage, or chemical solutions to enter your drinking (potable) water system as a result of backflow. Cross connections are one of the most serious public health threats to a potable water supply system, and can be present in a residential water system.
You can pollute your own drinking water without even knowing it. By eliminating cross connections, you can help protect the water we all share.

Participation with this program is required in accordance with Michigan's Safe Water Drinking Act - P.A. 399, Part 14.

The City of Rochester Hills has contracted with HydroCorp of Troy, MI for its cross connection inspections. Please note that letters addressing cross connection will be sent out to residents in phases throughout the city. Click here to view a sample letter. 

Should you need further information please contact HydroCorp at 844-493-7641.

Wastewater Pipeline Inspections 

The City of Rochester Hills Department of Public Services has contracted with infrastructure inspection company RedZone Robotics to proactively inspect 247 miles of aging wastewater pipeline. This inspection will allow the City to plan for pipeline replacement and help avoid inconvenient sewer backups and costly emergency repairs. Emergency repairs typically cost four to five times more than pre-planned repairs and replacements. For more information on this project, click here to read the frequently asked questions.
