The Plumbing and Gas Piping Program for Seattle and King County is launching a P&G Newsletter to help inform the industry of code requirements and inspections. The P&G Newsletter will provide information to help industry develop accurate construction schedules. The P&G Newsletter will also provide updates on resources or guidance to industry around code and plan submission processes.
Over the past five and a half years Public Health – Seattle & King County Plumbing and Gas Program has collaborated with multiple plumbing industry organizations to create design guidance and a plan review process. The Plumbing and Gas Program is continuing this collaboration with the plumbing industry. The American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) Seattle Chapter Board of Directors has taken an unprecedented approach to create and produce example design plans to be housed on the Plumbing & Gas Piping homepage.
The City is updating the codes we use to review and inspect your projects. We plan to use the 2015 Seattle codes to review new building permit applications and plans submitted after January 1, 2017. Seattle’s codes are based on model codes published by the International Code Council, the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials, and the State of Washington’s adoption of codes.
