§ 20. Permit and Plan Check Fees. 

(a) Local Enforcement. Any person submitting an application for a 
permit to construct shall pay appropriate fees. Valuation of buildings for 
the purpose of determining fees for permits to construct shall be deter- 
mined by the enforcement agency. The governing body of any city or 
county may prescribe fees for permits, certificates, or other forms or doc- 
uments required or authorized by this subchapter. 

(b) Enforcement by the Department. The fees specified in this sub- 
chapter shall apply where the Department is the enforcement agency. 

(1) Penalty Fees. Where work for which a permit is required by this 
subchapter is started or proceeded with prior to obtaining that permit, the 
fees specified in this article may be increased by the enforcement agency 
but shall not be more than double the fees specified for obtaining the per- 
mit; however, the payment of that fee shall not relieve any persons from 
fully complying with the requirements of this subchapter in the execution 
of the work or from any penalties prescribed herein. 

(2) Plan Check Fees for Identical Buildings. When any person files 
applications simultaneously to construct two or more buildings which are 
identical, only one plan check fee will be required. Upon payment of that 
plan check fee and the filing of an additional set of plans with the enforce- 
ment agency, subsequent construction permits may be issued for other 
identical buildings without payment of plan check fees. 

(3) Minimum Permit Fee. The total permit fee is the sum of the fees 
prescribed in subsections (b)(4), (b)(5) and (b)(6) of this section and in 
no case shall be less than $15. 

(4) Plan Check Fees. Plan check fees shall be equal to one-half of the 
combined total of construction, mechanical, plumbing and electrical per- 
mit fees, as set forth in Tables A, B, and C, however, the minimum fee 
shall be $10. Those plans which have been returned to the plan submitter 
for correction shall be resubmitted along with a fee equal to 25 percent 
of the original plan check fee. 

(5) Permit Issuance Fee. The permit issuance fee shall be $10. A single 
permit may be issued for all work to be accomplished at the same time 
on the same premises.

ceeds the proceeds received from the sale of any materials, then the 
amount of the net expense of abating the nuisance, if not paid within five 
days after the decision of the governing board on its statement, shall con- 
stitute a lien on the real property upon which the same was abated or re- 
moved, which lien shall continue until the amount thereof and interest

Section 1 1346.2(d) (Register 85, No. 36). 

§ 1206. Federal Regulations. 

A park gas piping distribution system is subject to the Pipeline Safety 
Law of 1994 (49 USC Section 1971) and regulations adopted by the Of- 
fice of Pipeline Safety Operations. The applicable regulations are con- 
tained in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 1 9 1 and 1 92. 

(a) The operator of a park gas piping system is responsible for comply- 
ing with the federal regulations in addition to this chapter. A permit is not 
required from the enforcement agency for the installation of cathodic 
protection if the existing gas piping system is not otherwise altered. 

This chapter does not prohibit the installation of cathodic protection 
systems and requirements lor corrosion control of buried or submerged 
metallic gas piping systems required by the federal regulations in exist- 
ing systems. If there is any conflict between the provisions of this chapter 
and the federal regulations, the provisions of the federal regulations shall 
prevail. 

(b) Plans and specifications for the installation of a metallic gas piping 
system shall specify methods of protecting buried or submerged pipe 
from corrosion, including cathodic protection, unless it can be demon- 
strated that a corrosive environment does not exist in the area of installa- 
tion. The design and installation of a cathodic protection system shall be 
carried out by, or under the direction of, a person qualified by experience 
and training in pipeline corrosion methods so that the cathodic protection 
system meets the requirements of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regula- 
tions, Parts 191 and 192. 

(1) All buried or submerged metallic gas piping shall be protected 
from corrosion by approved coatings or wrapping materials. All gas pip- 
ing protective coatings shall be approved types, machine applied, and 
conform to recognized standards. Field wrapping shall provide equiva- 
lent protection and is restricted to those short sections and fittings neces- 
sarily stripped for threading or welding. Risers shall be coated or 
wrapped to a point at least six (6) inches above grade. 

(2) All metallic gas piping systems shall be installed in accordance 
with plans and specifications approved by the enforcement agency, in- 
cluding provisions for cathodic protection. When the cathodic protection 
system is designed to protect only the gas piping system, the gas piping 
system shall be electrically isolated from all other underground metallic 
systems or installations. When a cathodic protection system is designed 
to provide all underground metallic systems and installations with 
protection against corrosion, all such systems and installations shall be 
electrically bonded together and protected as a whole. 

(3) When non-metallic gas piping is installed underground, a locating 
tape or No. 18 AWG or larger copper tracer wire shall be installed with 
and attached to the underground piping for the purpose of locating the 
piping system. The locating tape or tracer wire shall terminate above 
grade at an accessible location at one or more ends of the piping system. 
Every portion of a plastic gas piping system consisting of metallic risers 
or fittings shall be cathodically protected against corrosion.

§1336. Wind Load Calculation. 

Wind load is calculated as follows: 

(a) From the exterior of the MH-unit, measure the total length of the 
exposed side wall in feet and in fractions of feet. Then measure the height 
of the exposed side wall in feet and fractions of feet, measuring from the 
point of connection of the side wall with the roof to the bottom of the side- 
wall, excluding any skirting installed at the site. Multiply the measure- 
ment of the length of the side wall by the measurement of the height of 
the side wall to obtain the exposed square footage of the side wall. 

(b) From the exterior of the MH-unit, measure the total length of the 
exposed roof in feet and fractions of feet. Then measure the height of the 
exposed roof in feet and fractions of feet, measuring vertically from the 
point of connection with the side wall to the peak of the roof. Multiply 
the measurement of the length of the roof by the measurement of the 
height of the roof to obtain the exposed square footage of the roof. Divide 
the square footage by two, in order to compensate for the reduced wind 
load against a pitched roof. 

(c) Add the square footage obtained in the calculation described in 
subsection (a) to the square footage obtained in the calculation described 
in subsection (b) to obtain the total square footage of the exterior side of 
the MH-unit exposed to wind load. 

(d) Multiply the square footage obtained in the calculation described 
in subsection (c) by either the design wind load of the MH-unit or by fif- 
teen (15) psf, whichever is greater, to obtain the wind load. The design 
wind load of the MH-unit is provided on the data plate permanently af- 
fixed to the MH-unit. 

EXAMPLE: The side wall of the MH-unit measures sixty-two and 
one-half feet (62 1/2' ) in length and ten feet (10' ) in height. The roof 
of the MH-unit measures sixty-three and one-half feet (62 1/2') in 
length and four and one-third feet (4 1/3' ) in height. These measure- 
ments result in a calculated wind load of 1 1 ,437 pounds using the above- 
described method. 

(a) 62.5 X 10 = 625 square feet 

(b) 63.5 X 4.33 = 274.96/2 = 137.48 square feet 

(c) 625 -I- 137.48 = 762.48 square feet 

(d) 762.48 X 15 = 1 1,437.2 or a 1 1,437 pound wind load.

§ 1336.2. Installation Requirements for a Tiedown System 
Consisting of Listed Tiedown Assemblies. 

The installation of a tiedown system consisting of listed tiedown as- 
semblies shall comply with the requirements of this section. 

(a) Unless otherwise specified in the MH-unit manufacturer's instal- 
lation instructions, the nuinber of tiedown assemblies that must be 
installed for each longitudinal side of an MH-unit shall be determined by 
dividing the wind load calculated as required in section 1336 by the 
working load of the listed tiedown assembly chosen for use. 

(1 ) The quotient shall be rounded up to equal the number of listed tie- 
down assemblies required for each longitudinal side. 

(2) The working load of the listed tiedown assembly used in the cal- 
culations shall be for type 5 soil, also known as one thousand 
(l,000)-pound soil, consisting of clay, sandy clay, silty clay and clayey 
silt, as classified in the California Building Code, Table 18-1-A. 

(b) The number of tiedown assemblies required pursuant to subsection 
(a) may be reduced to no less than two (2) under the following circum- 
stances: 

(1) If the MH-unit' s installation instructions provide for a reduction 
in the number of tiedown assemblies and for the subsequent, concen- 
trated amount of resistance at specific points on the MH-unit; and 

(2) if engineered data is submitted to and approved by the enforcement 
agency which substantiates a different class of materials constituting the 
soil into which the anchor is to be inserted, as provided in the California 
Building Code, Table 18-1-A. 

(c) No less than two (2) tiedown assemblies shall be installed at each 
end of each transportable section of the MH-unit. The working load of 
the tiedown assemblies installed at each end of an MH-unit shall be the

ounces to a maximum eight (8) ounces). The system shall be isolated 
from the air pressure source and inaintain this pressure for not less than 
two (2) minutes without perceptible leakage. Upon satisfactory coinple- 
tion of the test, if the appliance valves ahead of fuel gas cooking ap- 
pliances have been shut off, they shall be opened and the gas cooking ap- 
pliance connectors tested with soapy water or bubble solution while 
under the pressure reinaining in the piping system. Solutions used for 
testing for leakage shall not contain corrosive chemicals. Pressures shall 
be measured with either a manometer, slope gauge, or gauge calibrated 
in either water inches or psi with increinents of either one-tenth (1/10) 
inch or one-tenth (1/10) ounce, as applicable. 

Note: The fuel-gas piping system shall not be over-pressurized. Pressurization 
beyond the maximum specified may result in damage to valves, regulators, ap- 
pliances, etc. 

(2) Gas appliance vents shall be inspected to insure that they have not 
been dislodged in transit and are securely connected to the appliance. 

(d) The electrical wiring and power supply feeder asseinbly of the 
MH-unit shall be tested for continuity and grounding. The electrical wir- 
ing system shall not be energized during the test. An MH-unit equipped 
with a power supply cord shall not be connected to the lot service equip- 
ment. An MH-unit equipped with a feeder assembly shall have the flex- 
ible metal conduit of the feeder assembly connected to the lot service 
equipment; however, the supply conductors, including the neutral con- 
ductor, shall not be connected. 

(1) The continuity test shall be made with all interior branch circuit 
switches or circuit breakers and all switches controlling individual out- 
lets, fixtures and appliances in the "on" position. The test shall be made 
by connecting one lead of the test instrument to the MH-unit grounding 
conductor at the point of supply to the feeder assembly, and applying the 
other lead to each of the supply conductors, including the neutral conduc- 
tor. There shall be no evidence of any connection between any of the sup- 
ply conductors and the grounding conductor. In addition, all noncurrent- 
carrying metal parts of electrical equipment, including fixtures and 
appliances, shall be tested to determine continuity between such equip- 
ment and the equipment grounding conductor. 

(2) Upon completion of the continuity test, the power supply cord or 
feeder assembly shall be connected at the lot service equipment. A fur- 
ther continuity test shall then be made between the grounding electrode 
and the chassis of the MH-unit. 

(3) If the final electrical connection has been approved by the enforce- 
ment agency and electrical energy is available at the lot equipment, a po- 
larity test shall be conducted with the MH-unit energized. 

(e) When an MH-unit consists of two (2) or more sections, all utility 
connections from one section to another shall be visually inspected and 
included in the tests. 

(f) Upon approval of the installation and satisfactory completion of the 
gas and electrical tests, the lot equipment shall be approved for service 
connection.

tablished by calculations in accordance with generally established prin- 
ciples of engineering design. However, when the composition or config- 
uration of elements, assemblies, or details of structural members is such 
that calculations of their safe load-carrying capacity and basic structural 
integrity cannot be accurately determined in accordance with generally 
established principles of engineering design, structural properties of such 



members or assemblies may be established by the results of tests accept- 
able to the department. 

If a manufacturer chooses to substantiate a design or method of 
construction by tests, the manufacturer shall contact the department prior 
lo performing the tests to obtain information on testing criteria. If a de- 
partment representative is required to witness the tests, the manufacturer 
shall be so nofified. 

(b) When any structural design or method of construction is substan- 
tiated by calculations and supporting data, such calculations and support- 
ing data shall be signed by an architect or engineer and shall be submitted 
to the departinent 

(c) When the design of an earthquake resistant bracing system is sub- 
stantiated by calculation or tests, all structural plans shall be signed by

§ 2206. Federal Regulations. 

A park gas piping distribution system is subject to the Pipeline Safety 
Law of 1994 and regulations adopted by the Office of Pipeline Safety Op- 
erations. The applicable regulations are contained in Title 49 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations, Parts 191 and 192. 

(a) The operator of a park gas piping system is responsible for comply- 
ing with the federal regulations in addition to this chapter. A permit is not 
required from the enforcement agency for the installation of cathodic 
protection if the existing gas piping system is not otherwise altered. 

This chapter does not prohibit the installation of cathodic protection 
systems and requirements for corrosion control of buried or submerged 
metallic gas piping systems required by the federal regulations in exist- 
ing systems. If there is any conflict between the provisions of this chapter 
and the federal regulations, the provisions of the federal regulations shall 
prevail. 

(b) Plans and specifications for the installation of a metallic gas piping 
system shall specify methods of protecting buried or submerged pipe 
from corrosion, including cathodic protection, unless it can be demon- 
strated that a corrosive environment does not exist in the area of installa- 
tion. The design and installation of a cathodic protection system shall be 
carried out by, or under the direction of, a person qualified by experience 
and training in pipeline corrosion methods so that the cathodic protection 
system meets the requirements of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regula- 
tions, Parts 191 and 192. 

(1) All buried or submerged metallic gas piping shall be protected 
from corrosion by approved coatings or wrapping materials. All gas pip- 
ing protective coatings shall be approved types, machine applied, and 
conform to recognized standards. Field wrapping shall provide equiva- 
lent protection and is restricted to those short sections and fittings neces- 
sarily stripped for threading or welding. Risers shall be coated or 
wrapped to a point at least six (6) inches above grade. 

(2) All metallic gas piping systems shall be installed in accordance 
with plans and specifications approved by the enforcement agency, in- 
cluding provisions for cathodic protection. When the cathodic protection 
system is designed to protect only the gas piping system, the gas piping 
system shall be electrically isolated from all other underground metallic 
systems or installations. When a cathodic protection system is designed 
to provide all underground metallic systems and installations with 
protection against corrosion, all such systems and installations shall be 
electrically bonded together and protected as a whole. 

(3) When non-metallic gas piping is installed underground, a locating 
tape or No. 18 AWG or larger copper tracer wire shall be installed with 
and attached to the underground piping for the purpose of locating the 
piping system. The locating tape or tracer wire shall terminate above 
grade at an accessible location at one or more ends of the piping system. 
Every portion of a plastic gas piping system consisting of metallic risers 
or fittings shall be cathodically protected against corrosion.

tion of their five-year test and certification for minimum water flow, be- 
ginning with the permit to operate renewal year 2008, after the initial wa- 
ter flow test has been completed. 

(3) The five-year test and certification of the required water flow and 
the operational test shall be conducted during the 12 months prior to the 



renewal of each fifth year park permit to operate. The previous five-year 
renewal for the prior permit to operate must have complied with the re- 
quired water flow standards set forth in section 2316 of this article. 

(4) Testing for the required water flow shall be conducted in such a 
manner as to ensure there is no pollution of the storm drain system or any 
other water or drainage systems within, or serving, the park, and no dam- 
age to structures or improvements within or outside of the park. 

(5) The test results reported on the designated form shall only be certi- 
fied by one of the following: 

(A) the fire agency responsible for fire suppression in the park, 

(B) a local water supplier, 

(C) a licensed C-16 Fire Protection Contractor, or 

(D) a licensed Fire Protection Engineer. 

(6) In order to certify the test results reported on the form, the fire 
agency responsible for fire suppression in the park, local water supplier,

or treated to resist rust and designed and constructed in accordance with 
the design requirements of California Building Code , Part 2, Chapters 
16, 19, 21, 22 and 23. The required load bearing capacity of individual 
support piers and their footings shall be calculated at not less than a com- 
bined live and dead load of seventy-five (75) psf, based on roof live and 
dead load of twenty-five (25) psf and floor Uve and dead load of fifty (50) 
psf of the accessory structure. 

(b) Load bearing piers, other than concrete block piers, shall be tested 
to determine the safe operating load. The tests shall be conducted by test- 
ing agencies approved by the department. Testing agencies shall provide 
a pier testing report to the department upon completion, regardless of the 
testing results. A unique number provided by the testing agency shall 
identify each test report. The following testing procedures shall be used: 

(1) A compression test shall be performed on three (3) piers of the 
same height and construction, selected randomly at the pier manufactur- 
ing facility by a representative of the testing agency. 

(A) The compression test shall be performed on piers with all required 
design assemblies installed, such as adjustable tops, clamps, securement 
devices or similar assemblies. 

(B) The selected piers shall be subjected to the compression test with 
each pier, fully assembled as will be installed, placed squarely on a firm 
base, and tested to its failure point. The compression test shall be mea- 
sured in psf. Support pier failure will be established when the support 
bends, cracks, buckles or deflects to an unsafe level as determined by the 
approved testing agency. 

(C) The safe operating load of a support pier is one-third (1/3) the av- 
erage of the three (3) failure tests. 

(2) When piers differ in height or construction, design tests and evalua- 
tions must be performed on each type of pier. 

(c) Tested load bearing piers, other than concrete block piers, shall be 
listed and labeled as follows: 

(1) Listing of piers shall be conducted by listing agencies approved by 
the department. 

(A) The listing agency shall conduct manufacturer facility audits and 
prepare finding reports not less than once per year. The audit report will 
include, at a minimum: 

(i) the review of pier construction for compliance with manufactured 
designs as approved by the testing agency, 

(ii) the materials used in its construction including type, size, and 
weight, 

(iii) the manufacturer's quality control program, if applicable, and 

(iv) the label apphcation and label control process. 

(B) Tlie listing agency shall provide an annual report of its approval 
and audit findings. 

(2) Pier supports shall display a legible permanent label of approval, 
visible when the pier support is installed. The label shall contain the fol- 
lowing information: 

(A) Manufacturer's name, 

(B) Listing agency name, 

(C) Listing number issued by the listing agency, 

(D) Testing agency's approved operating load, and 

(E) Testing agency's test report number. 

(d) Individual load bearing footings may be placed on the surface of 
the ground, and shall be placed level on cleared, firm, undisturbed soil 
or compacted fill. Where unusual soil conditions exist, as determined by 
the enforcement agency, footings shall be designed to compensate for 



such conditions. The allowable loading on the soil shall not exceed one- 
thousand (1,000) psf unless data to substantiate the use of higher values 
is approved by the enforcement agency. 

(e) Footings shall be adequate in size to withstand the tributary hve and 
dead loads of the accessory structure and any concentrated loads. The 
length to width ratio of the footing shall not exceed two and one-half (2 
1/2) to one (1).
