A Category 3 Water is grossly unsanitary water containing pathogenic agents, arising from sewage or other contaminated water sources and having the likelihood of causing discomfort or sickness if consumed or exposed to humans.

Examples include, but are not limited to: sewage, toilet backflows that originate from beyond the toilet trap regardless of visible content or color, all forms of flooding from seawater, ground surface water and rising water from rivers or streams, and other contaminated water entering or affecting the indoor.

How do you prevent sewage backflow?
Install a backflow valve to prevent backups

from backing up into your home. Clean it periodically to keep it working. The valve closes when water comes into it from the wrong direction. If a clog occurs, the backflow valve will stop the sewage from backing up into your house.
