In 2013 Crooked River Ranch Water Company along with the Oregon PUC put into effect a rule that protects the system by requiring all properties to have a backflow assembly. It was also mandated that any new backflows be placed in the meter box and be installed by the water company staff. Once the backflow assembly has been installed in the meter box it then becomes the property of the water company and the company is not responsible for testing and repairs at no cost to the member. This program was put into place to protect the system and our members from potential contamination.
Note that any backflow assembly installed after April of 2013 is required to be installed by Crooked River Ranch Water Company Staff. With the exception of irrigation only backflow assemblies.
