Codes to protect the people of Louisiana

JUNE 1, 2014

In 1924, when the Department of Health and Hospitals developed codes to protect the people of Louisiana, the Louisiana Plumbing Law was enacted and the State Plumbing Board was created. The State Plumbing Board continues to fulfill our fiscal responsibilities as well as protect the health and welfare of the people of Louisiana initially doing so by moving forward to the enactment of the Louisiana Master Plumber Licensing Law in 1990.

GOING GREEN!

FEBRUARY 18, 2015

State Plumbing Board Of Louisiana Goes GREEN!

We are joining the GREEN movement! Everywhere you look these days you see and hear people talking about going GREEN, well the State Plumbing Board of Louisiana is joining the effort.

Energy efficiency has not only environmental benefits but economic benefits as well. We have begun recycling newspaper, bottles, cans and anything around the office that can be recycled. We try to operate on natural light in the afternoon hours and all computers and office equipment are powered down every night. We have recently added to the new applications and renewal forms a space to provide an email address. This will greatly save on paper as we hope, in the future, to correspond more through email as the bank of email addresses grows.

As more companies go GREEN the option for email billing is offered and we take advantage of this whenever offered. When ordering office supplies and office equipment we try to order things made of recycled materials. And finally changing our office hours cuts down employee travel (reduces gas expenses and fuel emissions), reduces operating costs and improves employee productivity and satisfaction. The State Plumbing Board of Louisiana encourages you to do what you can to go GREEN!
