Through its network of regions and chapters, local needs and interests are supported with the resources of the national organization.

The ABPA and Safe-T-Cover have frequently met to exchange information relating to backflow prevention and protecting the water supply. One of the key topics they discuss is RPZ flooding, as is shown in this video of an RPZ discharging water, thankfully while in an enclosure and not indoors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rj-xDwKDsic
