How will the new law be enforced?
The Maryland Plumbing Act authorizes the State Board of Plumbing to conduct investigations into any complaints that allege facts that constitute a violation of the Act. In addition to members of the public, a county, municipality, or unit of the State government, may file a complaint with the Board. The Board also has authority to seek injunctive relief against any conduct that is in violation of the Act and that may result in irreparable harm to any person.
