Rule Caption: Establishes an alternate regulatory option for Sprague High School, Salem

Adm. Order No.: BCD 3-2013(Temp)

Filed with Sec. of State: 3-1-2013

Certified to be Effective: 3-1-13 thru 8-28-13

Rules Adopted: 918-100-0125

Subject: This rule establishes an alternate regulatory option for Sprague High School. The High School is undergoing a remodel and has encountered difficulty related to a number of island sinks installed in a classroom. The classroom is on an existing cement slab. Installation of an acid waste system requires individual open venting from each island sink making the classroom unusable for lectures or other activities. An appropriately certified chemical waste air admittance valve system would negate the need for the open air vents and return the room to a multi-use room for the school. Air admittance valves have a unique applicability to island sinks. The Director is adopting this rule to accommodate this emerging technology at the Sprague High School site.

Alternate Regulatory Option for Air Admittance Valves

The division finds that air admittance valves have a unique applicability to remodel situations where a number of independent lavatory sinks installed on islands would otherwise require numerous roof penetrations to allow for venting. In order to accommodate this emerging technology as an alternative to open roof vents in particular settings, the Director establishes the following alternative regulatory option for Sprague High School in Salem, Oregon.

(1) Notwithstanding any requirements under the Oregon Plumbing Specialty Code and Statewide Alternate Method 07-01, air admittance valves may be installed for use in Sprague High School’s laboratories or classrooms’ island lavatories in accordance with this rule.

(2) Air Admittance Valves must be installed according to the installation instructions and listing specifications.

(3) Installations under this alternate regulatory option are not exempt from licensing and permitting requirements.

(4) The above provisions apply to construction where plans or permit applications are submitted during the effective period of the rule regardless when actual construction is commenced provided work begins prior to permit expiration.
