Join us in our commitment to safe drinking water. Welcome to the Oregon Chapter of the American Backflow Prevention Association website. While many of us have different jobs, as professionals in the water works industry, we share a common goal in protecting drinking water supplies. Backflow prevention is an essential part of meeting that goal and is most effective when we work together. The Oregon Chapter of ABPA is one of the most active chapters in the nation and serves as a great example of people working together to protect our drinking water supplies. Our annual seminar brings together dedicated professionals from around the region to learn, share, and build strength in our combined efforts. All are welcome and we hope to see you at our next seminar. I thank current & past members for all their efforts in making the Oregon Chapter an effective and rewarding organization, and invite all who share our commitment to safe drinking water to become a member.

The Oregon Chapter of the American Backflow Prevention Association (OR-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.
