WATER SURVEY ... A select group of Barron Park residents received notices by mail last week regarding a state-mandated residential water survey to protect drinking water. The survey asks questions regarding a backflow-prevention device. To protect drinking-water quality, Palo Alto is required by state law to administer a backflow-prevention program. At this time, the city is testing the survey language only with the Barron Park residents; however, in the fall, the surveys will be administered citywide. City Utilities department staff will come to properties to do an inspection if the resident does not complete the survey. The property owner will then be billed up to $250 for the cost of the inspection. Questions can be addressed by emailing the city at backflow@cityofpaloalto.org or by calling 650-496-5926. The online survey is available at www.cityofpaloalto.org/backflow.
