Hydrocorp is continuing inspections on residential irrigation systems (in-ground sprinklers) as part of Canton’s Residential Cross Connection Control Program. It’s a quick inspection of the sprinklers backflow on the outside of your home. Residents will be notified by mail if their home is scheduled for inspection.
All inspections will be done outside of your home and at no time should any Hydrocorp employee ask to gain entrance. Hydrocorp employees will have marked vehicles and be wearing safety orange vests with marked uniforms. All calls can be directed to Hydrocorp at 844/493-7641
Under the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act, the EGLE institutes rules to protect drinking water and to prevent cross connections that may contaminate public drinking water systems. All communities are required to implement a program for removal of ALL existing cross connections and the prevention of all future cross connections.
Canton currently requires cross connection testing on commercial and industrial facilities due to their perceived greater risk of contaminants. While testing of these facilities will continue, Canton is now required to address the residential sector. Most residential contamination risks come from the large number of underground irrigation systems.
