Break for Lunch






Steve Wong of Wilkins gave an informative presentation on Lead-Free Plumbing Legislation and the new requirements that went into effect January 1, 2010.  The information Steve brought to the table fostered a vigorous discussion on the subject.  The many questions raised highlight the fact that there is still a great deal of confusion about specifics pertinent to the Law; What and who is effected? and How the law will be enforced?  Steve was able to answer most of the concerns as well as point out some areas that still need clarification.  Good Presentation, Thanks Steve!



Thank you Sarah Aguilar with Southland Industries, Alan Wald with IAPMO, Phil Ribbs of PHR Consultants and Mo Salberg of KDS Plumbing for your generous contributions and continuing support.



Mo Salberg has been appointed Alternate to Dave Mann on the Plumbing Technical Committee.  Congratulations Mo!
