Backflow

Backflow Registration


Backflow technicians who have not previously registered with the City, should complete a registration form (PDF). Technicians who have registered in the past, should contact the Public Works Department for a renewal letter, instead of completing the registration form. If you are paying by credit card, payment can be made by fax at 817-952-2240 or via email. 

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 backflow technician that is currently registered with the City of Bedford. Please contact Public Works at 817-952-2200 for the complete list of registered technicians..

Test Report Books


Effective April 18, 2016, photocopies of backflow test reports will no longer be accepted and backflow technicians are required to purchase test report books from the Public Works Department. Test report books are printed in triplicate (original, pink and yellow copies) and cost $10 for a book of 25 forms.
