Re: Just read this . Electrician cuts copper gas line by mistake .oklahoma
I wonder the same thing Rick. The copper was already existing and should have already deemed legal. I can only assume the inspector so that the copper was old and deteriorating. Maybe he saw signs of illegal installation or couldn't find the orginal gas permit on it. But that is one costly mistake. That's how the jobs go, Im sure the General Contractor is going to want to backcharge the electrician. And then he's going to blame the apprentice. Look at the bright side no one was hurt.
