             1401          (3) In IBC, Section 1605.3.1 and Section 1605.3.2, exception 2 in each section is
             1402      deleted and replaced with the following: "2. Flat roof snow loads of 30 pounds per square foot
             1403      (1.44 kNm2) or less need not be combined with seismic loads. Where flat roof snow loads
             1404      exceed 30 pounds per square foot (1.44 kNm2), the snow loads may be reduced in accordance

             1425      protected from sliding snow and ice."
             1426          (6) In IBC, Section 1608.1.2, a new section is added as follows: "1608.1.2 Utah Snow
             1427      Loads. The ground snow load, Pg, to be used in the determination of design snow loads for
             1428      buildings and other structures shall be determined by using the following formula: Pg = (Po2 +
             1429      S2(A-Ao)2)0.5 for A greater than Ao, and Pg = Po for A less than or equal to Ao.
             1430      WHERE:

             1435      Ao = Base ground snow elevation from Table 1608.1.2(a) (ft./1,000).
             1436      The building official may round the roof snow load to the nearest 5 psf. The ground snow
             1437      load, Pg, may be adjusted by the building official when a licensed engineer or architect submits
             1438      data substantiating the adjustments. A record of such action together with the substantiating
             1439      data shall be provided to the division for a permanent record.
             1440      The building official may also directly adopt roof snow loads in accordance with Table

             1442      Where the minimum roof live load in accordance with Section 1607.11 is greater than the
             1443      design roof snow load, such roof live load shall be used for design, however, it shall not be

             1965      Snow Loads. The ground snow load, Pg, to be used in the determination of design snow loads
             1966      for buildings and other structures shall be determined by using the following formula: Pg = (Po2
             1967      + S2(A-Ao)2)0.5 for A greater than Ao, and Pg = Po for A less than or equal to Ao.
             1968      WHERE:

             1975      load, Pg, may be adjusted by the building official when a licensed engineer or architect submits
             1976      data substantiating the adjustments. A record of such action together with the substantiating
             1977      data shall be provided to the division for a permanent record.
             1978      The building official may also directly adopt roof snow loads in accordance with Table
             1979      R301.2(5b), provided the site is no more than 100 ft. higher than the listed elevation.

             1981      roof snow load, such roof live load shall be used for design, however, it shall not be reduced to
