Plumbing and Gasfitting Plans

Plumbing and Fuel Gas plans are required for all commercial construction. The code official shall have the authority to waive submittal requirements. Typically commercial work with 10 or less permit items, including gas appliances, may be waived.

Plans that will not be waived include:

  • Plans that require FOG (fats, oils, and grease abatement) 
  • Fuel gas plans that have more than 3 appliances on the entire gas system and/or any of the gas appliances are over 200,000 Btu input. 

Submittal Requirements (to Plumbing Plan Review office):

Plans shall include floor plans to scale, schematics for fuel gas, waste and vent and water piping riser diagrams, and where appropriate, such details as meter room layout, equipment schedules, backflow prevention device details, elevations and site plans, material and fixture specifications, fixture clearances etc. Submittals must also include a completed Submittal Checklist as well as a completed permit application signed by a registered WSSC Master Plumber / Gas Fitter.

ELECTRONIC PLAN SUBMITTAL:

The applicant must first apply for a Long Form Plumbing /Fuel Gas Permit. The Permit will be reviewed by the Development Service Group then sent on to the Regulatory Services Group. RSG will determine if plans are required and will assign a plan number. When the plan number is assigned, an email will be sent to let the applicant letting them know plans can be uploaded into E-Plan Review. This email will be sent to the Master Plumber’s E-Permitting email only. If you are currently not an E-Plan Review user, the initial email will include a temporary password to allow you to register.

  • Additional E-Plan Review users – If a Proxy for the Master Plumber would like to be an additional applicant on a plan, they must send an email request to Plumbingplansreview@WSSCWater.com. You must include the PFG Plan Number in your email. If you are currently not an E-Plan Review user, the initial email from E-Plan Review will include a temporary password to allow you to register.
  • Plan Status -Emails with the plan review status will be sent automatically as we review the plan. When the plan status is approved, RSG will approve the application and return it to DSG for “Final Processing”.
  • E-Plan Review website -  E-Plan Review instructions can be found on the Login page.

PAPER SUBMITTALS: 

The applicant must first apply for a Long Form Plumbing /Fuel Gas Permit. The Permit will be reviewed by the Development Service Group then sent on to the Regulatory Services Group. RSG will determine if a plan is required and will assign a plan number. When the plan number is assigned, paper plans (max 2 pages, 24 fixtures) may be dropped off with a completed Plan Submittal Sheet at the RSG Plans Review Counter on the lobby level at the main building in Laurel.

  • Plan Status - When a review is complete, we will send a plan status email only to the address provided on the submittal sheet. When the plan is approved, RSG will approve the application and return it to DSG for “Final Processing”. Approved plans will be ready for pick up at the RSG Plans Review counter.
