Plumbing & Natural Gas

*NOTICE* Due to the ongoing fight against COVID-19,  The Plumbing and Food Service Plan Review section of the Arkansas Department of Health is encouraging plan submissions to be sent electronically via our online plan portal. For questions, or to request portal information contact: Plumbing 501-661-2650 or Food Service 501-661-2163.  Plans will continue to be reviewed as quickly as possible. 

The Department of Health provides consultation to local public health officials, architects, engineers, and other construction related professions regarding sanitary plumbing and natural gas systems. We supervise the inspection program for newly constructed public and private facilities throughout the state for compliance with Plumbing and Fuel Gas Codes, and provide testing and certification of various plumbing related licenses, such as Master/Journeyman, city inspectors and gas fitters. The department is responsible for publishing codes, rules and regulations for licensing, and conducts plumber and gas related training programs.

Please call 501-661-2642 for plumbing licensing application questions. Plumbing Plan Review forms and guidelines, as well as applications, can be located below.
