Backflow Test Submission Price Increase

*A MESSAGE FROM PENNSYLVANIA WATER SPECIALTIES COMPANY*

As of May 15th, 2017 the backflow test submission fee will increase to $17.00.  This increase is intended to defray increased administrative costs of administering the cross connection control program and sending letters to customers notifying them of the need for backflow device testing and installation.

Additionally, the charge for tests submitted in paper format with a check included will increase further to $25.00.  This increase is intended to offset the greater processing requirements that accompany paper submission and check handling.  We will not be able to accept mailed test results after May 15th, 2017 if they are not accompanied with a check for the $25.00 payment.

Testers are strongly encouraged to use our quick and convenient online portal at pawsc.todaytest.com instead of mailing test forms and checks.  To set up your account, call us at 844-605-5213 weekdays between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM.

Cross connection control administration is an essential element of providing clean and safe drinking water.  We look forward to continuing to work with ASSE certified backflow testers to ensure that the water supply is properly protected from backflow incidents.

If you need additional information or have any questions, please call 844-605-5213 weekdays between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM.

Sincerely,

PAWSC Cross Connection Control Department
