To comply with the EPA's Safe Drinking Water Act, backflow prevention devices need to be inspected annually to ensure the infrastructure is working properly. If a device does not pass the set standards, repairs or replacement is required. Because of these requirements, a utility needs to record backflow prevention inspections and the infrastructure needing repairs.
Backflow Inspection is a configuration of ArcGIS. Once configured, the Backflow Inspection map can be accessed by field crews using the ArcGIS Collector app to view backflow prevention devices within the service area and collect inspection reports.
Backflow Inspection requires specific technical experience and software.
When you deploy Backflow Inspection to your organization, you'll find the following:
|Map||Backflow Inspection||A map used to host the backflow inspection service and related inspection table.|
|Feature Layer||Backflow Inspection||A feature layer containing the backflow inspection schema.|
