PVB Back Flow Prevention Devices
The Village of Pinckney has adopted the Michigan Department of Public Health code R325.11401 to R325.11407 which requires that all PVB devices be tested on a routine basis. Experience shows that there is not a mechanical device, which can be depended upon unless it is routinely tested and maintained. Backflow prevention devices must be tested only by certified backflow prevention testers who are knowledgeable of the workings of the devices and fully realizes the hazards of cross connection with a potable water system. At minimum, the State requires that these devices be tested every 3 years and you are required to submit a copy of the test reports to the Village Offices.

Winter Mailbox Maintenance
Before the ground freezes is a good time to check your mailbox installation to make sure it can weather upcoming winter weather. The Village cannot assume responsibility for damage caused by heavy wet snow when it is thrown against a weakened post or box. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to replace the box and post. Additionally, private installation within the public right-of-way, such as sod, flowers or sprinkler systems may be unavoidably damaged. Because it is the statutory responsibility of the DPW to maintain the roadways and right of ways, the Village can not be held responsible for damage caused to private installations within these areas.
