This house was built in 1989 and the gas fired boiler is power vented through this piece of duct. I wrote it up as a hazard because it can be easily blocked by water or snow. Additionally, I noted that an animal can enter into the duct and block it.

The boiler was serviced by a heating contractor in March, 2012 and a new duct was installed.

Was this ever allowed??

Actually it's very specific thanks to your government.

NOAA can provide the historical max depth of snow accumulation for most areas. The 12" of clearance is above this depth.

I kinda disagree. As Kurt mentioned, snow drifts. Snowfall depth records don't account for drift heights.

Yep, read it. No height, and drifting is noted as a reason.
