Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision a of section 17-194 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new paragraph 6 to read as follows:

6.  “Water tank inspection company” shall mean any company authorized to inspect the water tank of a building.

§ 2. Subdivision b of section 17-194 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 239 for the year 2017, is amended to read as follows:

b. Any owner of a building that has a water tank as part of its drinking water supply system shall have such water tank inspected at least once annually. Such inspection shall ensure that the water tank complies with all provisions of the administrative code of the city of New York, the construction codes of the city of New York and the health code of the city of New York. The results of such inspection shall be recorded in a manner prescribed by the commissioner. Such results shall be maintained by the owner and by the water tank inspection company for at least five years from the date of inspection and shall be made available to the department upon request within five business days. Documentation of such annual inspection shall be submitted to the department directly by the water tank inspection company, prior to submitting such documentation to building owners, in a form and manner prescribed by the department. Such documentation shall state whether or not all applicable requirements were met at the time of inspection and provide a description of any non-compliance with applicable requirements.
