Well, I wouldn't have such a heart attack over this except for one thing: Only those who actually followed the law and got a permit for their water system are charged. So, I am being penalized because my sprinkler system was put in legally. Anyone who installed the system themselves and didn't get a permit doesn't have to get the certification. I have to say, I am really irritated that I am being penalized because we did what the law required. What a crock!
If you read the ordinance, there is an argument that anyone with an outdoor spigot has to get a backflow certification, but it's only those who want to be as legal and conserve water that are being targeted.
Thanks City of Chubbuck, I love you too!
