Cross Connection

What is a Cross Connection? The Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 established national standards for drinking water.  State and local governments or water utilities are charged with enforcing these standards, protecting the public water supply, and delivering safe drinking water.  Yet cross connections can contaminate drinking water without anyone realizing it.  

Throughout the year the Lakeland Sanitary District #1 will contact residents and businesses in our district to inspect the water lines and make sure there are no backsiphoning into our drinking water supply lines.  We are required to inspect a set quota amount of residents and businesses by the Public Service Commission of WI (PSC). For more detailed information please see our brochures and information provided below or call our office.  We are here to serve you and provide you with safe, clean drinking water!
