New York City Local Law Compliance And Safety Program For Gas And Water Systems

New York City has multiple local laws that require periodic inspection and testing under the supervision of a Licensed Master Plumber.  Requirements have changed for 2019.

Failure to comply with these laws will result in violations and fines and can ultimately result in the termination of water and gas service.
