Our Work

The Plumbing Foundation City of New York works hard
to promote the plumbing industry and protect its members by . . .

  • Influencing Legislation and Policy

    Protecting the public’s health and ensuring safe codes for all New Yorkers, at state and city levels.

  • Providing Guidance to Our Members

    Helping to navigate a complex bureaucracy with constantly changing codes and regulations.

  • Giving Back to the Community

    Plumbing Foundation is affiliated with the Plumbing Industry Promotion Fund of New York City, which provides many of the charitable, educational, and scholarship programs for the plumbing industry.

Established in 1986, the Plumbing Foundation City of New York, Inc. is a nonprofit association of licensed contracting firms, engineering associations, manufacturers and suppliers whose mission is to ensure the public health through the enactment and enforcement of safe plumbing codes. In connection with that mission we regularly meet with legislative and regulatory bodies that pass laws and promulgate regulations affecting the plumbing industry. We also work with various New York City agencies in our efforts to reduce unneeded bureaucratic steps and paperwork that increase costs to the consumer with no public health benefit. The Plumbing Foundation maintains close working relationships with key City agencies and groups including the Department of Buildings, Department of Environmental Protection, Health Department, Fire Department, and Master Plumber/Fire Suppression Contractor License Board.

On Tuesday, September 19th, 2017, City & State, in conjunction with The Plumbing Foundation, hosted a panel discussion at New York Law School titled “Protecting New York’s Water Supply.”

The event was aimed at educating New Yorkers and policymakers on the importance of protecting New York’s water from contaminants such as Legionnaires’ Disease, and how to preserve a superior quality water supply.

We encourage you to view the recorded panel discussion below.
