Adoption of Regulations Permitting Statewide Residential Use of Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) Plastic Plumbing Pipe without First Making a Finding
NOD - Notice of Determination
The project is a change in existing regulations which allow the statewide use of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride ("CPVC") for residential plumbing systems. Currently, CPVC pipe is allowed for residential potable water systems, subject to two conditions. First, certain mitigation measures must be followed. Those mitigation measures are set forth in the applicable regulations and therefore have the effect of governing law applicable to CPVC use. The second condition that applies to the existing statewide use of CPVC for residential plumbing is the requirement that a local building official must make a finding that there is or will be the premature failure of metallic pipes due to existing water or soil conditions, prior to allowing the use of CPVC (the "Findings Requirement"). The proposed project is to delete this Findings Requirement so that CPVC may be used for any residential occupancy in the State of California, subject to the existing mitigation measures, but without the requirement for a finding by the local building official.
