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 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.
