The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) requirements for a water cross connection program have changed and Fenton City’s water cross connection ordinance requires updating to meet current requirements. City staff has worked with EGLE and the city attorney to revise the code of ordinances’ water cross-connection control amendment. A water supply cross connection is a connection or arrangement of piping or appurtenances through which a backflow of non-potable water could flow into the public drinking water supply. This amendment was drafted to avoid backflow into the city’s water supply by preventing future cross connection. The updates will be submitted to EGLE to meet compliance requirements.
