ILLINOIS CHAPTER

MESSAGE
April 2022

In the April 2022 newsletter, please see the e-mail I have received; it is for the IPH variance for all LSLR programs around the state. The first paragraph is what is important the ISAWWA was in opposition of the Plumbing code variance. The AWWA is a national standard for Civil engineers, the ISAWWA is the state of Illinois chapter. To be transparence I am a member of the ISAWWA through my employment of DWM, I serve on the back-flow committee.

The bottom line of the variance is that when the existing conditions do allow for the 18” or the 10’ sewer and water separation, you can replace the lead water line with type K copper pipe with no sleeving for the house to b-box to the water main. Pipe pulling is allowed with this variance, this will have a significant reduction of cost for the water supplier and home owners. The variance also as a requirement that all water supplier must report with the IDPH in the required electronics form within 15 days for people that do not want their water service replaced from the house to the b-box.

The LSLR variance can be given by the local IDPH Certified Plumbing Inspector. I have a variance form that will be used by the Plumbing Inspectors in the City of Chicago Department of Water Management. All Plumbing contractors will need this formed filled out before any work can commence, we will NOT issue any variance after work has started.

I would like to have an all-member meeting on the first week of June at a location TBD. I will follow up with the details in the very near future.

Fraternally,
Denis Riordan
