     Original Notice.

     Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 03-08-027.

     Title of Rule: Amendment of chapters 51-56 and 51-57 WAC (adoption and amendment of the 2003 Edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code and Plumbing Code Standards).

     Purpose: To consider amendments and adoption of the 2003 Edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code and Plumbing Code Standards published by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials.

     Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 19.27.031 and 19.27.074.

     Statute Being Implemented: Chapters 19.27 and 34.05 RCW.

     Summary: The proposed rules include adoption of the 2003 Edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code and Standards, with amendments (including Appendices A, Sizing the Water Supply System, B Explanatory notes on combination waste and vent systems, and I, Installation Standards). Amendments providing greater safety and flexibility than the published version include expanded options for relief valve drains and water hammer arrestors.

     Reasons Supporting Proposal: RCW 19.27.031 and 19.27.074.

     Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting and Implementation: Krista Braaksma, Olympia, Washington 98504-8350, (360) 725-2970; and Enforcement: Local jurisdictions.

     Name of Proponent: Washington State Building Code Council, governmental.

     Agency Comments or Recommendations, if any, as to Statutory Language, Implementation, Enforcement, and Fiscal Matters: The council is seeking comments on the issues proposed in the rules shown below.

     Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

     Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: The proposed rule will update the state code by referencing the 2003 Edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code and Uniform Plumbing Code Standards (UPC), published by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials. Amendments are proposed to (a) coordinate the existing state amendments with the updated UPC, (b) retain some of the existing language from the 2000 Edition of the UPC where it was felt necessary to protect public health, and (c) introduce some additional options for residential water heater drains to increase code flexibility.

     Proposal Changes the Following Existing Rules:

Chapter 51-56 WAC:

     1. The following sections contain editorial changes for consistency within this code and with other model codes, and to correct references and dates: Sections 003, 008, 102.4, 413.0, 501, 502, 301.1.3, 314.5.1, 512-525, 603.

     2. Section 007: Clarification that codes referenced in the model code must be specifically adopted by the council or local jurisdictions or the pertinent state code will take precedence.

     3. Section 208: The existing state amendment is deleted; the conflict with the Mechanical Code no longer exists.

     4. Section 301.1.1: The existing state amendment is deleted. Code change at the national level makes the language equivalent to the existing state code.

     5. Section 316.1.6: The existing state amendment is deleted. Code change at the national level makes the language equivalent to the existing state code.

     6. Section 505: Chapter 5 was reformatted in 2003. Existing Section 509 was relocated to Section 505 in the model code. The state amendment to this section is retained.

     7. Section 508.5: An exception was added to allow residential water heater discharge to the drip pan.

     8. Section 509: (See Section 505.) Access and Working Space was retained from the existing code and moved to this location. These provisions were not present in the 2003 version.

     9. Section 603.4.11: This new amendment specifies air gaps or RP backflow device for potable water connections to boilers for consistency with state drinking water regulations.

     10. Section 604.1: Editorial change to coordinate the existing state amendment to include new materials present in 2003 UPC.

     11. Section 608.5: This new amendment allows alternatives for the termination of residential water heater relief valves. See also Section 508.5.

     12. Section 609.10.2: This new amendment allows water hammer arresters to be installed in concealed locations if allowed by the manufacturer's specifications.

     13. Section 1101: This proposal moves the storm draining requirements found in Appendix M back into Chapter 11. These are existing state amendments to the Storm Drainage provisions.

     14. Section Chapter 13: This chapter was reformatted to coordinate with NFPA 99. Since that was the intent of the existing state amendments, many of them were no longer needed. Editorial changes were made to coordinate with language in the 2003 edition.

     15. Section 1313.3: Clarification to direct user to the Department of Health regulations for med gas inlets/outlets.

     16. Section 1331: Editorial change to section title to coordinate with existing language. Section 1331.1.1 also specifies that the vendor cannot perform verification.

     17. Chapter 14: The existing state amendment to Chapter 14 was reformatted to be more user-friendly.

     18. Appendix M: See Chapter 11.


Chapter 51-57 WAC:

     1. Sections 003, 008: These sections maintain existing statewide amendments, correcting section references and dates. Appendix B, Explanatory Notes on Combination Waste and Vent Systems, is proposed for adoption.

     2. Section 20200: A new amendment is proposed Installation Standard 20-200 to add an exception to allow use of products designed to be used without primer.

     No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. This rule will update the adoption of model codes to stay current with national standards for the benefit of industry and Washington state interests. No adverse economic impact on small business was identified.

     RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to this rule adoption. The State Building Code Council is not listed in this section as one of the agencies required to comply with this regulation.
