ABPA Harrington-Arthur Memorial

$1,500 Scholarship Essay Competition

 

 

The ABPA Harrington-Arthur Memorial Scholarship Essay Competition was established to reward students who seek to increase their knowledge and understanding of how Cross-Connection Control and Backflow Prevention help ensure safe drinking water. Backflow Prevention is designed to prevent dangerous - and sometimes fatal - bacteria, chemicals and other harmful agents from entering the local water supply systems. Backflow Prevention programs are essential to ensure that the water that reaches your home, school or place of business is as safe and pure as it was when it left the water treatment plant.

The ABPA's focus is to have a public educated in the value and need for active local backflow prevention programs. Our goal is safe drinking water through cross-connection control. The organization works to build a greater public awareness of backflow prevention as one component of safe drinking water.


2018 - 2019: Application Period is Closed

Explain backflow prevention and why it is important in protecting potable water supplies. Discuss some of the hazards that could be a threat to our drinking water, and the types of backflow prevention to protect against them.
