How do I know when my assembly needs to be tested?

The City maintains a database containing all the permitted backflow assemblies in Silverton. It is your responsibility to have your backflow assembly tested annually, during the month previously tested, between January 1 and June 1. The City currently sends out a courtesy reminder in the spring. Do not wait for the reminder; schedule your test during the month it was scheduled last year. All assemblies must be tested at least once annually so you do not need the reminder to schedule your test.  

It is the customer’s responsibility to schedule the test and make payment arrangements. Upon completion of the test, the customer will be given a copy and the tester will submit the results to the City.
