I shudder to think of what a replacement for = gorgeous > spotted metal Principals will look like in gray PVC out in the facade = pipes.   Sounds like some dumb-a**, pea-brained bureaucrat is being a little over zealous here. How do they claim that organ pipes pose a danger to the environment? Do they think that some kid is going to go up to the facade = and chew on the pipes or something? That someone might decide to recycle them = for water pipes? Lead in any form or place is evil?   Cheers, TommyLee Whitlock who usually just lurks and learns
