Backflow prevention assembly testers (BPATs) are trained to test and repair backflow prevention assemblies and play an important role in protecting the public water system. To test backflow prevention assemblies (BPAs) in the Austin Water Utility distribution area, BPATs must be licensed by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and registered with Austin Water Utility.
The Water Protection Program has modified the Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester registration process and is no longer accepting in-person registrations. Please review the “Registering Your BPAT License and Test Gauge with Austin Water Utility” information below to see how to register via mail or email. If you have any question, please call 512-972-1060. Thank you!
