What codes does the city use?

Like all cities and counties in Oklahoma with building permit and inspection processes, Sand Springs has adopted the 2015 International Codes Council code series for building construction and trade work, and 2014 National Electrical Code, as adopted and amended by the Oklahoma Uniform Building Codes Commission. A code set is available for public viewing in the Neighborhood Services office during normal business hours. To view the OUBCC amendments, go to www.ok.gov/oubcc/. The only local amendment requires installation of backwater valves on all building drain sewer connections.
