It started with the earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010. The death toll was upwards of 250,000. Another 300,000 were injured, and 1.5 million people were displaced.

603.3.2 Atmospheric Vacuum Breaker (AVB). An atmospheric vacuum breaker consists of a body, a checking member, and an atmospheric port.
The purpose of a vacuum breaker is to stop backsiphonage. The atmospheric vacuum breaker (AVB) consists of a valve that allows air into the piping system for the purpose of stopping a downstream siphon (see Figure 603.3.2a). At the same time, a check valve is closed to the supply piping. A common design element is that the airinlet valve and check valve are nearly always the same mechanical component. A float rises with water pressure to seal the system for water to flow and drops with a lack of water pressure opening to the atmosphere.
