Region 2: Virginia Chapter
Group Pages

The Virginia Chapter of the American Backflow Prevention Association (ABPA) is an organization whose members have a common interest in protecting drinking water from contamination through cross connections. Our Chapter, along with the national organization, is dedicated to education and technical assistance in our region. We are committed to advancing all aspects of backflow prevention for the continued protection of all water users.

The National American Backflow Prevention Association (ABPA) was founded in 1984 by industry advocates to provide educational and technical assistance in order to protect public health by protecting drinking water through effective cross connection control. ABPA has a network of regions and chapters that support local needs and interests with the resources of the national and international organization.
