2015 Plumbing Code - State Code Change Proposal Deadline ExtendedThe deadline for submitting proposals to amend the 2015 Uniform Plumbing Code has been extended to April 15, 2015. In light of the limited availability of the 2015 UPC thus far, the Council voted to extend the proposal deadline to allow more time for interested parties to review the new code.
