Irrigation Systems

All irrigation systems installed under the new irrigation regulations are required to have a backflow device installed. Currently only commercial facilities are required to have backflow devices on irrigation systems tested annually. However, the City's program will be revised and updated based on any new forthcoming State requirements.

Commercial Facilities

Commercial facilities are required to have all backflow devices tested annually by a licensed tester that is currently registered with the City of Bedford. Please contact Public Works at 817-952-2200 for the complete list.
