Cross-Connection Control

Irrigation Guidelines

  • IrrigationBackflow protection is required on all irrigation systems to ensure the safety of the public water supply. If your property has an irrigation system that does not have the required backflow protection you are not in compliance.
  • If an irrigation system is supplied by a well or river, the system must be totally segregated from the public water supply.
  • If an irrigation system is supplied by a well or river the Murfreesboro Water Resources Department requires you to fill out a Cross-Connection Control Statement. The completed form may be returned by fax or mailed with your water and sewer bill payment.
  • If you are not sure your irrigation system has the required backflow protection, please contact us and we will schedule an inspection.
Please refer to the Cross-Connection Control Procedures Manual for all cross-connection control requirements to include approved devices and installation criteria.
