ASPE Joins Plumbing Efficiency Research Coalition

March 09, 2011

The American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) has joined the Plumbing Efficiency Research Coalition (PERC) as the sixth member of the group. PERC was founded in 2009 to develop research projects that will support water efficiency and sustainable plumbing products, systems and practices. Projects will be financed through government grants, foundations and private financing.

Representing ASPE, the newest coalition member, is Jim Kendzel, executive director/CEO. The five charter member organizations include Mary Ann Dickinson, Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE); Pete De Marco, International Association of Plumbing & Mechanical Officials (IAPMO); Jay Peters, International Code Council (ICC); Gerry Kennedy, Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National Association (PHCC), and Barbara Higgens, Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI).

“The objectives of the Coalition are consistent with ASPE’s desire to provide the plumbing engineer community information that helps them to design plumbing systems that are environmentally sound while also protecting public health,” said Kendzel.
