Appendix 1. Legislative History for Ordinance 2269.


Latest version.
  • Ordinance 2269, the Plumbing Code for Los Angeles County, was originally adopted on May 29, 1933. Ordinance 2269 was kept up to date by frequent amendments until the entire Plumbing Code was repealed and replaced by Ordinance 95-0068. Major amendments, each amending Ordinance 2269 in its entirety or adopting the current edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code, are listed and briefly described in Table A below; amending ordinances are also listed.

    Table B covers the legislative history of the county's own Plumbing Code provisions before Ordinance 95-0068 was passed, and gives the specific legislative history for each section. Some repealed material is included for continuity.

    Table C shows the correspondence between sections of the 1991 Uniform Plumbing Code and the 1994 Uniform Plumbing Code. The 1991 Uniform Plumbing Code was extensively revised and renumbered to create the 1994 Uniform Plumbing Code.

    Provisions of Ordinance 95-0068 and its amendments now comprise Title 28 of the Los Angeles County Code.
