Site Surveys

USC Foundation Tester Course

The student is also taught how to plan and conduct an actual site survey of a facility in order to determine which type of backflow protection, if any, is necessary for meter protection. 

One morning, the attendees are asked to conduct an actual site survey.  They are asked to evaluate and determine the degree of hazard, if adequate backflow protection is present and, if not, what would be necessary to adequately protect against backflow. 

A syllabus, the current edition of the Manual for Cross-Connection Control along with all of the necessary educational tools will be provided for each attendee.
