Since 2001, GA EPD has mandated that all public water systems implement a Backflow-Prevention Program, requiring all backflow-prevention testing be performed by an approved Tester. Testers must hold a certification from one of the following to be recognized in the state of Georgia:

  • Statewide Backflow-Prevention Tester Certification Program (GA EPD Program administered by GAWP)
  • Training, Research, Education, Environmental Occupation (TREEO from University of Florida)
  • American Society of Sanitary Engineers (ASSE)
  • American Backflow Prevention Association (ABPA)

The information provided on this site is applicable to the Statewide Backflow-Prevention Tester Certification Program that is managed by GAWP. Information included in this site that is applicable to the other approved certification programs is noted as such.
