MUCA Member Update
Persistence Pays Off –Plumbing Code Interpretation Issued!
MUCA has been engaged and closely following the issues specific to utility service connections associated with the newly adopted Minnesota Plumbing Code that went into effect January 23rd. I am happy to report the Plumbing Board has issued a Final Interpretation allowing the use of PE pipe, when used for building supply, to be installed under and inside buildings.
It took two Requests for Interpretation, testimony by several interested parties (MUCA, Polyethylene Technology, Inc., MN Water Well Association, and MN Mechanical Contractors Association) with two Plumbing Board meetings; one regular (April) and one emergency (June) to get this accomplished. Thanks to all those in the industry for your dedication and participation. The Plumbing Board is in process of correcting the code permanently, however that will take up to two years.
Here’s the Final Interpretation… you can all go back to doing the good work you’ve always done, the way you’ve always done it!
Family Picnic Day at the Saints!
2015 Photo contest winner, Bill Herwig with Tri-State Drilling, grabbed the kids and joined us for Family Picnic Day last year. It’s your turn to share the smiles at the Saints on Sunday, August 14th! Ticket includes a group picnic, kids activities on the field prior to the game, and happy baseball fans.
Noted as one of the most unique baseball experiences with fun and engaging characters roaming the stands — plus a WINNING baseball team, and a craft beer corner, featuring Minnesota craft beers, this event is a great way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon.
