Cross-Connection Control Subcommittee

Meeting schedule and agenda for this open-participation group, which will advise the TCEQ on measures to protect drinking-water supplies by preventing cross connections and backflows.

The Cross-Connection Control (CCC) Subcommittee meets to discuss issues related to cross-connection control and backflow prevention. The CCC Subcommittee is a subgroup of the Drinking Water Advisory Work Group (DWAWG).

About This Subcommittee

The CCC Subcommittee provides the TCEQ with expanded knowledge and resources to address cross-connection control and backflow prevention throughout Texas.

This subcommittee was originally formed in 1996 as the CCC Work Group and met regularly for approximately six years. Authorization to re-create the work group as a subcommittee of the DWAWG was granted in September 2007.
