Beginning this month, the FGUA will begin annual maintenance of potable water meters in the Oak Grove community by installing new internal cartridges in existing backflow prevention devices on the potable water meter that will fit within the potable meter box. The cartridge change ensures that each customer meets all Federal and State drinking water safety standards.  Backflow is an unplanned reverse flow of water that can cause serious health concerns from possible contaminated water on the customer’s side of the potable metered connection.  Installation of the new cartridges in existing backflow device ensures that a reverse flow does not occur or contaminate the public water system.

During this installation process, customers may expect up to a 45-minute interruption of service.  Prior to the cartridge changeout on each property, an FGUA Representative will provide a courtesy knock notifying you of the interruption in service.  Once the installation is complete, customers may resume water use as desired, as no Precautionary Boil Water Notices are needed for this service improvement.

For those residences that have an existing above-ground backflow prevention device (RPZ), your installation will take place once all other non-RPZ locations have been installed, as these units require additional work to complete.  A separate notice will go out to alert you to when this installation will take place.
