What is back-siphonage and its causes?

A: Back-siphonage is the reversal of normal flow in a system caused by a negative or reduced pressure (vacuum or partial vacuum) in the supply piping. Back-siphonage can be created when there is an interruption of the water supply due to nearby fire-fighting, repairs or breaks in the water supply mains, etc.
