Welcome to the Northern Illinois American Backflow Prevention Association Website. The purpose for this website is to link all water industry professionals. Our goal for NIABPA is to promote, discuss, and teach backflow prevention. Whether its fire protection related, irrigation related, potable water related, or water distrubution related, all members have a common goal of protecting our public water supplies as well as the public who consumes it. We encourage all to join our association and attend our meetings.
The American Backflow Prevention Association, an international organization, was founded in 1984 to involve all people in protecting public health by protecting the drinking water through cross-connection control and backflow prevention.
The American Backflow Prevention Association, through its regions and local chapters, is committed to providing educational programs, technical assistance,and public awareness in the field of backflow prevention to all water consumers today, and into the 21st Century and beyond.
