INSPECTOR OF.BUILDINGS MEMORANDUM TO FROM The Honorab!~ :X~~fAllen, Jr. W. R. Woffo~ RE 1307 Thurgood Street, S. W. • In regard to the matter of a group of girls living on the premises at the above address I advise that there is considerable difference of opinion in the neighborhood concerning this matter. We have had a number of complaints from adjoining residents contending that the current use of the premises violates zoning provision while, on the other hand, the operator of the premises contends that he is not in violation. Attorney Ward's review of the matter clearly points out that the girls can live on the premises as a family in the event the girls are sharing the rent and expenses and are cooking and eating together, which would be permissible under zoning provisions. However, if the girls are paying rent separately to the landlord, it would appear that a boarding house is being operated in violation of zoning laws. Based upon inspections made and information obtained it appears that Mr. Glass is operating an illegal rooming or boarding house. Mr. Glass has been notified of the above matter and asked to correct the situation. Due to the differences of opinion between the neighbors and the rooming house owner, it seems best to bring the matter before the courts in order to determine if a violation of the zoning ordinance exists. We are in the process of getting facts together in order to bring this matter to the municipal courts. The Police Department, through its licensing of rooming houses , has recently brought this matter before the Municipal Court for failure to obtain a license. It is my understanding that the girls thereafter vacated the premises for a period of approx imately one month. �

  • Text: August 22. 1969 Mr. Edward H. Baxter. Regional .Administrator Department of Housing and Urban Development Room 645. Peachtree-Seventh Building Atlanta, Georgia 30323 Dear Mr. Baxter: A question has arisen re gar ding the correct interpretation of Section 114 of Atlanta's Officia l Plumbing Code. Prior to December 20, 1966, Section 114 required the exclusive use of wiped lead stubs for floor outlet water clos e ts and urinals. At about that time HUD m a de a study of t he Plumbing Code and in the interest of modernization recommended that the City am end numerous p r o visions , including S e ctiur"i ll~. I ha ve been informed that the revision of Section 114 recommended by HUD follo wed verbatim th e corresponding provisi on of the Southern Standard Plumbing Code. As Mn.ended, Section 114 reads as follows: Sec. 114 . Fixture connections between drainage pipe s and water clo sets , F loor •- out l et service sinks, pedestal urinals, and ear taenware trap standards s h a ll be made by m eans of bras s, har d-lead or iron flanges , ca lked, soldered o r screwed to the drainage pipe. The connection shall be bolted, with a n approved gaske t o r washer or s etting compound between the earthenware and the conne ction. The use of comme1·cial putty or plaster i s prohibited. Since Section 114 provides that "the floor flange shall be se t on an approved firm base 11 , one contention is that the choice of "braes, hard-lead or iron flanges, calked, soldered. or screwed to the drainage pipe" applies only to a slab on grade, which constitutes "an approved firm base" . Under that theory Section 114 does not permit a choice of the three materials on iloors above a slab on grade because such othe1· floors do not necessarily constitute "an approved firm base". Under that view of Section 114 it would be permissible to restrict such joints on floors above slab on grade to wiped lead stubs. �Mr. Edward H. Baxter l?agc 2 Aug ust 2Z, 1969 The opposing interpretation ·1s that the purpose uf the amendment of Section 114 in Decen-iber, 1966, was to permit the choice of "brass, hard-lead or iron flanges , c alked, solder ed, or screwed to the d rainage pipe" and that the expreGs l anguage o! the Se ction is such as to permit such choice. Under that construction the phrase "an approve d firm base" a pplies equally to a ll of the materials and not juat to tho se other th.an l ead. The question has, therefore, been raised as to whether, under Section 114, the engineer o r plumbing contractor i3 restricted on floors above s lab on grade to wiped lead stubs or has a c h oice on such floors of u sing "bra ss, h a rd-lead or iron flan ges , c alked , soldere d or screwed to the drainag e pipe". Since HUD was instrumental in bring a bout the enactment of Section 114 in its present !orm, the City would like to know what H UD regards as the corre ct answer to that question. In addition to the correct interpretati on of Sec tion 114, it will be helpful if HUD will e xp ess its judment as to ;vhat the code ought to pr ovide on tnia pQ.int, entirely apart from the present language of Se ction 114, in order to enconra.ge the cons truction of low-i·ent, low-cost hou iug wi thout lowering reasonable standards 0£ safety and durability. Your help on th~se matters will be very much appreciated. Sincerely, Dan E . Sweat. Jre Chief Administr tive Officer DESJr :je �

Sweat, Jr. Chief Administrative Officer City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Sweat : ' ~- ..... .l • 1 • I This will acknowledge your letter dated August 22, 1969, addressed to Mr. Edward H. Baxter, Regional Administrator, concerning the interpretation of Section 114 of the City of Atlanta's Plumbing Code, which reads as follows: Sec. 114. Fixture connections between drainage pipes and water closets, Floor-outlet service sinks, pedestal urinals, and earthenware trap standards shall be made by means of brass, hardlead _or iron flanges, calked, soldered or screwed to the drainage pipe. The connection shall be bolted, with an approved gasket or washer or setting compound between the earthenware and the connection. The floor flange shall be set on approv~d firm base. The use of commercial putty or plaster is prohibited • I I •I Your letter outlines two opposing interpretations of this Section, both of which are centered around the provision that "the floor flange shall be set on an approved firm base." The first int~rpretation is that the choice of materials is restricted to a · slab on grade, which, according to this interpretation, is the only slab that constitutes "an approved firm base" insofar as the use of brass or iron flanges is concerned. The second interpretation is that the intent of the Section is to permit the choice of materials ("brass, hard-lead or iron flanges, calked, soldered, or screwed to the drainage pipe") on slab floors above g-rade. -1 · l As interpreted by Regional Office codes specialists, the purpose of the Section is to permit the choice of all allowable materials on all floors constructed in accordance with building code standards. They point out that any floor of a building constructed in accordance with building code standards should constitute "an approved firm base" and thus, according to the Section as now written, the choice of all allowable mater ials should appl y to any f l oor so constructed. .... :_:.. ... - . --~ -.-: �r ,·. , ., -2 In our judgment, tne intent, purpose, and correct interpretation of this Section of Atlanta's Plumbing Code can be clarified by amending the code to contain a definition of the term "an approved firm base." A suggested definition is "any base constructed in accordance with building code specifications." The Section is identical to Section 606.1 of the 1967 Edition of the Southern Standard Plwnbing Code. It is also identical with Section P-503.0 of the 1968 Edition of the BOCA Basic Plumbing Code with one exception. The BOCA Plumbing Code specified a "structurally firm base" instead of "an approved firm base. 11 The Department encourages the adoption of codes which contain standards comparable to those contained in nationally recognized model standard codes such as the Southern Standard and the BOCA codes. Thus Section 114 of the Atlanta Plumbing Code meets present Departmental st andards as to content and intent if the section is interpreted to permit the choice of allowable materials on all floors constructed to building code specifications. Such an interpretation would also make this Section consistent with a policy of permitting the construction of housing at the lowest possible cost without lowering reasonable standards of safety and durability . ·, We trust that our comments on this matter will be of some benefit in arriving at an inter pre tation that will be satisfactory to all parties concerned.

INSPECTOR OF BUILDINGS MEMORANDUM TO FROM RE • The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. c. M. Smith, Assistant Building Officia ~ Letter from Jack W. Crissey Fulton Plumbing Company In accordance with an ordinance adopted December 16, 1968, to amend the Heating and Ventilating Code it is necessary for Mr. Crissey to secure a permit for the installation of the gas piping at a fee of $3.75 as well as a permit for the clothes dryer at a fee of $4.50. The required inspections are set out in the ordinance. However, the number of individual inspections will depend on the way he schedules his installation. Our inspectors will be glad to cooperate in making as few as is necessary for a conforming installation. In this case we can see no reason for the reference to Mr. Mitchell since clothes dryers and the gas supply lines are handled entirely by the Heating and Ventilating Division. Only in the case of hot water heaters does an installation fall within the jurisdiction of the Heating and Ventilating or the Plumbing Divisions: domestic hot water heaters under 75,000 BTU a r e handled by the Plumbing Division,. those 75,000 BTU and over are handled by the Heating and Ventilating Division. 1/ c:?"u.K �

Prior to Dec e mber 20 , 19 66, Sectio n 114 requir e d the exclus ive u se of wi p ed l ead s tub s for fl o or o u tl e t wa t e r clo se t s and u r ina ls . A t ab out tha t time HUD mad e a study of the P l umb i n g C ode and i n t he int erest of m oderniz ation r e comme nde d th a t the City anu~nd n umer ous p r ovi tduu l:i , iuduJlng S ec tion. 114 . I ha ve b een informe d that th e revision of Section 114 r e comm e nde d by H UD f o ll ow ed v e rbatin 1 the correspond i ng provi s ion of the S outhe r n Sta ndard Plumbing C ode . As htne n ded , Se ction 114 1·ead s a s foll owa : Sec. 114 . Fixtur e conne cti on s between d ra i nage p ipe s and water closets , F loo r- o u tl et se rvice sinks , p e destal urina l s, and earthenware t rap standard s s h a ll be made by m ean s of brass , hard- l ead o r i ron flanges , c a l ked, s olde1· ed or screwed t o the dra i nage pipe . The c onnec t ion shall be bolted, w i th an appr o ved gaske t or washe r or set tin g compound between the e a rthenware a nd the conne ction. T he use of commercial putty or plaster is prohtbited. Since Section 114 provides that "the floor flange shall be set on an approved firm base", one contention is that the choice of " b1•ass, hard-lead or iron flanges, calked, soldered, or screwed to the drainage pipe" applies only to a slab on grade , which constitutes "an appr o ved firm base". Under that theory Section 114 does not permit a choice of the three materials on iloors abovEl a slab on grade because such other floors do not necessarily constitute "an approved firm base ". Under that view of Section 114 it would be permissible to restrict such joints on floors above slab on grade to wiped lead stubs. �i Mr. Edward H. Baxter Page 2 .August 22, 1969 The opposing interpreQaa.tion is that the purpose o! the amendn1ent of Section 114 in December, 1966, was to permit the choice of "brass , hard-lead or iron flanges, calked, s oldered, or screwed to the drainage pipe" and that the express language ot. the Section is such as to permit such choice. Under that construc-tion the phrase "an approved firm base applies equally to all of the materia ls and not just to those othe r than lead. The question bas, the1·efore, been raised as to whether, under Section 114 , the engineer or plumbing contractor is restricted on floors above s lab on grade to wiped l ead stub2 or has a choice on such floo rs of using "brass, hard- l ead or iron flanges, c alked·, soldered o r ac1·ewed to the drainage pipe". Since HUD was iustrwnontal in bring a bout the e n actment of Section 114 in its present form, the City w ould like to know what HUD regards as the cor rect answer to that question. In addition to the correct interpretation of Sec tion U4, it will be he lpful if HUD will expcees its judment as to what the code ought to provide on this point,· entirely apart from the present language of Section 114, in order to gnconrage the construction of low- 1·ent, low-cost housillg without lowering reasonable standards 0£ safety and dura bility. Your help on these matters \trill be very rnuch appreciated. Sincerely, Dan E. Sweat, Jr. Chief Administrative Of!icer DESJr:Je �

Sweat, Jr. Chief Administrative Officer City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Sweat: This will acknowledge your letter dated August 22, 1969, addressed to Mr. Edward H. Baxter, Regional Administrator, concerntng the interpretation of Section 114 of the City of Atlanta's Plumbing Code, which reads as follows: Sec . 114. Fixture connections between drainage pipes and water closets , Floor- outlet service sinks, pedestal urinals, and earthenware trap standards shall be made by means of brass , hardlead . or iron flanges, calked, soldered or screwed to the drainage pipe . The connection shall be bolted , with an approved gasket or washer or setting compound between the earthenware and the connection. The floor flange shall be set on approv~d firm base . The us e of commercial putty or plaster is prohibited . Your let t er out lines two opposing interpr e t ations of this Section, both of which a r e cent e r ed around the pr ovision t hat "the floor flange shall be set on an appr oved fi rm base . " The first int~rpr etat;:. ion is that the choice of materia l s i s r es tric t ed to a slab on gr ade , which , acco r ding t o t hi s interpr e t at ion , i s the on ly slab t hat cons t i tut es "an appr oved f i rm base" i ns ofar as t he us e of br ass or iron flanges is concerned . The second interpretation i s th~t t he intent of t he Sectio~ i s t o permi t the choice of ma teria l s (" br ass , har d- l ead or iron f langes , c a l ked , solder ed , or s crewed to the dr a inage pi pe" ) on slab floo r s above grade . As interpret ed by Reg ional Office codes specia lis t s , the purpos e of the Section i s to permit t he choice of a ll a llowab le mat eria l s on a ll floors constructed in accordance with buil d ing c ode s t andards. They point out that any floor of a building cons tructed in accordance with building code standards should cons titute "an approved firm bas e" and thus, according to the Section as now written, the choice of all allowable materials should apply to any floor so constructed. �-2 In our judgment, the intent, purpose, and correct interpretation of this Section of Atlanta's Plumbing Code can be clarified by amending the code to contain a definition of the term "an approved firm base." A suggested definition is "any base constructed in accordance with building code specifications." The Section is identical to Section 606.1 of the 1967 Edition of the Southern Standard Plumbing Code. It is also identical with Section P-503.0 of the 1968 Edition of the BOCA Basic Plumbing Code with one exception. The BOCA Plumbing Code specified a "structurally firm base" instead of "an approved firm base." The Department encourages the adoption of codes which contain standards comparable to those contained in nationally recognized model standard codes such as the Southern Standard and the BOCA codes. Thus Section 114 of the Atlanta Plumbing Code meets present Departmental standards as to content and intent if the section is interpreted to permit the choice of allowable materials on all floors constructed to building code specifications. Such an interpretation would also make this Section consistent with a policy of permitting the construction of housing at the lowest posstble cost without lowering reasonable standards of safety and durability. We trust that our comments on this matter will be of some benefit in ·arriving at an interpretation that will be satisfactory to all parties concerned. Sincerely yours, ~ A . Frederick Smith Assistant Regional Administrator Program Coordination & Services Office tJ cc : Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. �
