             641      design snow loads for buildings and other structures shall be determined by using the following
             642      formula: Pg = (Po2 + S2(A-Ao)2)0.5 for A greater than Ao, and Pg = Po for A less than or equal to
             643      Ao.

             645      Pg = Ground snow load at a given elevation (psf);


             646      Po = Base ground snow load (psf) from Table No. 1608.1.2(a);
             647      S = Change in ground snow load with elevation (psf/100 ft.) From Table No. 1608.1.2(a);

             649      Ao = Base ground snow elevation from Table 1608.1.2(a) (ft./1,000).
             650      The building official may round the roof snow load to the nearest 5 psf. The ground snow
             651      load, Pg, may be adjusted by the building official when a licensed engineer or architect submits
             652      data substantiating the adjustments. [A record of such action together with the substantiating
             653      data shall be provided to the division for a permanent record.]
             654      [The building official may also directly adopt roof snow loads in accordance with Table
             655      1608.1.2(b), provided the site is no more than 100 ft. higher than the listed elevation.]
             656      Where the minimum roof live load in accordance with Section 1607.11 is greater than the
             657      design roof snow load, such roof live load shall be used for design, however, it shall not be
             658      reduced to a load lower than the design roof snow load. Drifting need not be considered for
             659      roof snow loads less than 20 psf."

             1065          Section 12. Section 15A-3-202 is amended to read:
             1066     
Part 2. Statewide Amendments to IRC

             1067           15A-3-202. Amendments to Chapters 1 through 5 of IRC.
             1068          (1) In IRC, Section R102, a new Section R102.7.2 is added as follows: "R102.7.2
             1069      Physical change for bedroom window egress in legal nonconforming rental housing use. A
             1070      structure classified as a legal nonconforming rental housing use, whose egress bedroom
             1071      window is smaller than required by this code, is not required to undergo a physical change to
             1072      conform to this code if the change would compromise the structural integrity of the building or
             1073      could not be completed in accordance with other applicable requirements of this code,
             1074      including setback and window well requirements."


             1075          (2) In IRC, Section 109:
             1076          (a) A new IRC, Section 109.1.5, is added as follows: "R109.1.5 Weather-resistant
             1077      exterior wall envelope inspections. An inspection shall be made of the weather-resistant
             1078      exterior wall envelope as required by Section R703.1 and flashings as required by Section
             1079      R703.8 to prevent water from entering the weather-resistive barrier."
             1080          (b) The remaining sections are renumbered as follows: R109.1.6 Other inspections;
             1081      R109.1.6.1 Fire- and smoke-resistance-rated construction inspection; R109.1.6.2 Reinforced
             1082      masonry, insulating concrete form (ICF) and conventionally formed concrete wall inspection;
             1083      and R109.1.7 Final inspection.
             1084          (3) IRC, Section R114.1, is deleted and replaced with the following: "R114.1 Notice to
             1085      owner. Upon notice from the building official that work on any building or structure is being
             1086      prosecuted contrary to the provisions of this code or other pertinent laws or ordinances or in an
             1087      unsafe and dangerous manner, such work shall be immediately stopped. The stop work order
             1088      shall be in writing and shall be given to the owner of the property involved, or to the owner's
             1089      agent or to the person doing the work; and shall state the conditions under which work will be
             1090      permitted to resume."
             1091          (4) In IRC, Section R202, the following definition is added: "CERTIFIED
             1092      BACKFLOW PREVENTER ASSEMBLY TESTER: A person who has shown competence to
             1093      test Backflow prevention assemblies to the satisfaction of the authority having jurisdiction
             1094      under Utah Code, Subsection 19-4-104 (4)."
             1095          (5) In IRC, Section R202, the definition for "CONDITIONED SPACE" is modified by
             1096      deleting the words at the end of the sentence "being heated or cooled by any equipment or
             1097      appliance" and replacing them with the following: "enclosed within the building thermal
             1098      envelope that is directly heated or cooled, or indirectly heated or cooled by any of the following
             1099      means:
             1100      1. Openings directly into an adjacent conditioned space.
             1101      2. An un-insulated floor, ceiling or wall adjacent to a conditioned space.
             1102      3. Un-insulated duct, piping or other heat or cooling source within the space."


             1103          [(5)] (6) In IRC, Section R202, the definition of "Cross Connection" is deleted and
             1104      replaced with the following: "CROSS CONNECTION. Any physical connection or potential
             1105      connection or arrangement between two otherwise separate piping systems, one of which
             1106      contains potable water and the other either water of unknown or questionable safety or steam,
             1107      gas, or chemical, whereby there exists the possibility for flow from one system to the other,
             1108      with the direction of flow depending on the pressure differential between the two systems (see
             1109      "Backflow, Water Distribution")."
             1110          (7) In IRC, Section 202, in the definition for gray water a comma is inserted after the
             1111      word "washers"; the word "and" is deleted; and the following is added to the end: "and clear
             1112      water wastes which have a pH of 6.0 to 9.0; are non-flammable; non-combustible; without
             1113      objectionable odors; non-highly pigmented; and will not interfere with the operation of the
             1114      sewer treatment facility."
             1115          [(6)] (8) In IRC, Section R202, the definition of "Potable Water" is deleted and
             1116      replaced with the following: "POTABLE WATER. Water free from impurities present in
             1117      amounts sufficient to cause disease or harmful physiological effects and conforming to the
             1118      Utah Code, Title 19, Chapters 4, Safe Drinking Water Act, and 5, Water Quality Act, and the
             1119      regulations of the public health authority having jurisdiction."
