St. Bernard Parish Government, Water and Sewer Department has recently contracted with Backflow Solutions, Inc (BSI) to administer their cross-connection control / backflow tracking program.
The tracking program for the St. Bernard Parish Government, Water and Sewer Department will be different from the current procedures, as it will be utilizing BSI’s service, BSI Online. The key component of BSI Online is that you, the testing company, will now be submitting your backflow test results online via BSI’s Online secure website for a filing fee of $12.95 per device.
Beginning November 1st, all test reports for backflow assemblies for the St. Bernard Parish Government, Water and Sewer Department service area will only be accepted via BSI Online at www.bsionlinetracking.com. There is no filing fee the first month of the program. Beginning December 1st, all tests will assess the $12.95 filing fee.
There will be an introductory webinar on October 30th, for your convenience.
