Plumbing Inspection & Backflow Prevention
Note: City of Zanesville commercial water customers must have a backflow prevention device installed and tested by January 31, 2014. Scroll down the page for more on backflow prevention.
Certified plumbing inspectors ensure and maintain the safety of our water supply. The Zanesville-Muskingum County Health Department inspects backflow devices, water heaters, and new and remodeled plumbing installations. When complaints about incorrectly installed plumbing or permit compliance arise, inspectors investigate and work to remedy problems.
