Mayor Bloomberg Amends NYC Plumbing Code
Mayor Michael R.
Bloomberg signed new legislation to update the NYC Plumbing
Code. This updated Code recognizes advances in technology and
the evolution of materials, acknowledges sustainability and
environmental concerns, helps address public health ― and eases
bureaucracy to make it easier to build.
