Discussion on the sustainability section of plumbing code – sub part N.
Mike is going to review the code proposed changes in detail and report at the next meeting?
Mike and Bev are going to meet in person to talk about his further.
Deadline for comments period ended June 10th. There will be another time as well as a second notice with another 45 comment period. If we would like to write a letter of support, we need to just run it by the WUC.

Discussion on sanitary surveys
EPA - They are following up on the sanitary surveys and backflow devices. We are unsure if this is a new direction for EPA or if we are just paying more attention to it. We need to figure out a way to help especially the smaller utilities on cross connection control. There is an intimidation factor as a non plumber that the operator needs to learn. We need to tell the operators that we have plumbers on the committee that can help to answer questions.

For next meeting
Update on the Health Dept. Presentation - Tom Staroske is working on it is hoping to continue work in the next week.

To Do
· Review support letter for plumbing code with the WUC.
· Bev and Mike to get together to review and comment on the code.
· Develop a way to get the word out to the utilities on cross connection. – Mike will do the next article on Splash regarding the availability of expertise.
· Don to video himself doing a testimonial or provide a written testimonial from an operator point of view.

Next meeting – September 3rd – Next meeting – 9am.
Skipping August meeting.
