Plumbing Permits

Plumbing may only be installed by a licensed journeyman plumber employed by an Oregon licensed plumbing contractor. Exception: A person, or their immediate relative, may do plumbing on their own residence as long as it is not commercial, industrial, or for sale, rent or lease.

A plumbing permit is required for any new plumbing installation or remodel of existing plumbing, except "ordinary plumbing repairs."
