Topic areas for proposed changes to the WE•Stand include: onsite wastewater treatment systems for direct potable water reuse; onsite gray water treatment systems; gray water ready plumbing; the Water Demand Calculator (WDC); reverse osmosis water treatment systems; water efficiency rating systems and methodologies; urine diversion system design and treatment methods; sustainable landscape design and installation; plant and irrigation system limitations; plant grouping via hydrozones; irrigation control systems; irrigation zone performance criteria; stormwater management and rainwater retention; water metering applications; leak detection and control; maximum hot water system ratios; commercial pre-rinse spray valves; and steam sterilizers.

IAPMO urges its members and other interested parties to get involved in the code development process to ensure effectiveness in preserving the public’s health, safety, and welfare through fair and balanced development of the WE•Stand. Installers, plumbing officials, the construction industry, engineers, and manufacturers all benefit from a cooperative effort in developing codes and standards.
