Plumbing Plan Review Requirements
New rules, effective in October 2006, specify when a building department can require plumbing plan review. This new approach is the result of legislation from the 2005 legislative session. The following provides contractors and local jurisdiction guidelines for the new rules.
The City of Wilsonville typically only requires plan review for plumbing systems defined as “complex”. A person may voluntarily request a plan review for any plumbing system that is not complex. 918-780-0040
Submission Requirements for a Plumbing Plan Review:
- Submission of complete specifications, piping layout, and fixture location drawings of the proposed system or alteration, before a plumbing permit is issued to ensure that the work conforms to the Oregon Plumbing Specialty Code.
- Information on fat, oil or grease equipment necessary to verify compliance with local and state code requirements for non complex systems, However, the existence of grease-processing equipment alone does not create a ‘complex structure’ as intended by the rule.
- When multiple buildings on one job site have plumbing systems that are ‘materially alike,’ only one plumbing plan review is allowed if the plumbing permits for all structures on the site are obtained within a ‘reasonable time’ )e.g. the same plumbing code cycle).
Definition of “Complex”
Under OAR 918-780-0040, a "complex structure” is defined as a plumbing system designed, constructed, or reconstructed to accommodate any of the following
Nothing in the rule prevents the City of Wilsonville from requesting and charging a plan review for a plumbing plan and necessary information to review exterior connections or stormwater treatment systems.
