Backflow Survey


The City of Kearney is conducting Cross Connection Surveys of residential plumbing systems. Cross Connection Surveys are required by the State of Nebraska Department of Health. The Department of Health requires that each residence conduct a plumbing survey, and that the public water supply system initiate and collect the surveys.

The purpose of the survey is to determine if cross connections exist in plumbing systems. Cross Connections are plumbing arrangements that provide a means whereby impure water, gas or liquid may gain entrance to the plumbing system to contaminate or pollute a safe water supply system in the event of a system backflow.

Your health and the communities’ health can be protected by identifying and eliminating cross connections. Please complete the below survey and either mail it or drop it in the drop-box site at:
