Beginning later this month, the FGUA will begin retrofitting potable water meters in the Thousand Oaks community in Trinity, Florida by installing new backflow prevention devices on the potable water meter that will fit within the potable meter box. The retrofitting 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 backflow device ensures that a reverse flow does not occur or contaminate the public water system.
Customers will receive a door hanger with information concerning the backflow installation at least 48 hours before work begins on their meter. During this installation process, customers may expect a 45-minute interruption of service. Prior to the retrofitting on each property, an FGUA Representative will provide a courtesy knock. Once service is restored, customers may resume water use as desired, as no Precautionary Boil Water Notices are needed for this service improvement.
The program schedule with proposed and actual schedules is noted below. Please be advised, the schedule is subject to change due to weather, environmental factors, physical factors in the utility right of way, and emergencies.
