Plumber Who Performed Emergency Work Didn't Violate DOB Procedures
LVT Number: #30553
DOB issued two violation notices to landlord's plumber for performing plumbing work without a permit and failure to inspect an alternatively engineered design plumbing system. DOB's inspector said he observed newly installed gas piping in a second-floor apartment and gas meter area of a building basement. There was no permit covering any gas work and no limited alteration application (LAA) was issued after the allotted five days. The plumber argued that it had responded to a gas leak at the building and filed an Emergency Work Notification (EWN) that was approved by DOB on Oct.
