Plumbing properly installed and maintained. (1 pt.)
PUBLIC HEALTH REASON
It is critical that all plumbing fixtures, including water and sewer lines in food establishments, be maintained in proper working order. Poorly maintained plumbing systems may result in potential health hazards such as cross connections, the back up of sewage or leakage. These conditions may directly result in the contamination of food, equipment, utensils or paper goods. Poorly maintained plumbing can also adversely affect the ability of food handlers to adequately wash their hands, cause improper warewashing operations and increase the potential for cross contamination of food, equipment and utensils.
