Hydrocorp Continues Testing Residential Irrigation Systems

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. State law requires all communities 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, by the state, to address the residential sector. Most residential contamination risks come from the large number of underground irrigation systems.

Hydrocorp has been contracted to preform Residential Cross Connection Control inspections throughout Canton. If your property is scheduled for inspection, you will be notified by mail.

Please note, all inspections will be done outside of your home and at no time should any Hydrocorp employee ask to gain entrance. Hydro Corp 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
