The local water purveyor has recently taken over the backflow program from the city but I still doubt that it will help that much.
Maybe someone needs to invent a backflow device with a super loud alarm that goes off when it fails.

They already exist, in the form of an optional relief-valve bonnet for RPZs with a switch built in, that lets you know if the relief valve opens.
