We, the undersigned, petition the State of California Building Standards Commission to disapprove the adoption of Section 715.3 of the 2018 Edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code. And, approve Title 24, Part 5, Section 715.3 of the 2016 California Plumbing Code as is, for the 2018 California Plumbing Code. 

We represent service providers, small businesses, property owners, municipal and utility managers and others that would be adversely impacted in the event Section 715.3 of the 2018 Edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code is adopted by the California Building Standards Commission. Section 715.3 of the 2016 California Plumbing Code provides the means to utilize specific technologies, equipment, and prescriptive standards to address the repair and replacement of existing sewers.

Whereas, adoption of Section 715.3 of the 2018 Uniform Plumbing Code will prohibit the ability to consider reasonable alternatives for the repair and replacement of existing sewers; may produce increased risk and/or exposure to health and safety construction issues; may result in a negative economic impact on small businesses, negative social impact through increased construction time and disruption, and negative environmental impact through increased carbon footprint.
