Alaska Water and Sewer Challenge

Drinking Water and Wastewater Codes and Regulations

Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation Drinking Water Regulations 18 AAC 80

Alaska Plumbing Code The State of Alaska adopts the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC). The 2012 edition of the UPC is currently the adopted version.

Although Section 18.60.735 of the UPC exempts unorganized villages, having less than 2,500 population, from the plumbing code; this project will require proposed water and sewer systems to comply with the UPC or to obtain a variance if system can be demonstrated to pose no risk to human health.
