WSSC Reminds Residents of Carbon Monoxide Hazards

Two recent carbon monoxide scares in our area resulted in individuals needing medical attention. The source of the carbon monoxide in both events was a gas appliance.

This is why the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) is reminding the public that carbon monoxide is a critical public safety issue and to be aware that:
  • plumbers must be licensed and obtain a WSSC permit to install gas appliances and
  • gas appliances must be inspected by a WSSC inspector upon installation. 
WSSC Regulatory Services has public resources available online, including FAQs, Plumbing Code information and flyers in English, Spanish and Chinese regarding gas appliance installation requirements.

WSSC is investigating each of the cases and scheduling inspections for each site. If there are questions regarding permits, installation and inspection, customers can contact WSSC at 301-206-4004.
