Maryland’s Lead-free Plumbing Law in Effect Jan. 1, 2012

January 30, 2012

Effective Jan. 1, 2012, Maryland’s No-Lead Law, HB372, prohibits manufacturers and importers from selling and contractors from installing potable-water plumbing products that contain more than 0.25% weighted average lead content on wetted surfaces. Note that a Federal law will come into effect on Jan. 4, 2014 that amends the Safe Drinking Water Act and will require all 50 states to become lead free.
