You can help prevent cross connections in the City's water supply. A cross connection is a physical connection between the drinking water and a non-potable source. The most common form of cross connections on residential properties is a submerged hose in pools. Fill your vessels (tub, swimming pool, ornamental fountain, etc.) through an air gap. Make sure the hose is not in the water, but let the water discharge through the air into the pool rather than submerging the hose.
