Project Experience

Below are representative projects that have been completed (or are ongoing) by G&G that demonstrate experience and success in the Regulatory Compliance Program area. Valuable experience is gained from each different Program that can be used to evaluate the most cost effective and beneficial strategies in the implementation of each Program for our clients.

Implementation of Corona DWP Backflow Prevention Program

G&G’s initial involvement in the City’s Backflow Prevention Program began with Program document reviews (Ordinance, Policy and Procedures, etc.) and in the surveying of all commercial and industrial user sites to identify backflow prevention devices. The survey revealed an additional 1,800 - 2,000 device than had previously not been identified by the City.

Beginning in 2012, G&G worked with the City to identify a new software tracking program to improve the administrative part of the program. Later that year, G&G began performing backflow testing services for the City with the assistance of a subcontractor (Empire Backflow). G&G now employs three certified testers in addition to the retention of the subcontractor to assure adequate coverage of all assignments.
