DIVISION OF PLUMBING INSPECTION

February, 1918 Thirty-three inspections were made during February, in factories, school and university buildings, state institutions, stores, public buildings, hotels, hospitals, military barracks and other structures.

One factory was ordered to install plumbing in accordance with the code. Certificates of approval were issued for two factories, one store, one hotel and one railroad freight house. Thirteen plans were examined — five for public schools, seven for state institutions and other public buildings and one for a church. A three-day meeting of the Ohio Master Plumbers at Dayton was attended. Two conferences were held.
