Following a change in pressure, caused by events like a fire hydrant usage or pipe bursting, backflow occurs when water flows backward into the main water supply line. This can unfortunately cause contamination in the main water supply from human waste, pesticides or other chemicals. Backflow prevention devices make sure this never happens by only allowing water to flow in one direction.
