Lack of bond strap

For all you *pipe* people...

Is the lack of a bond strap here okay, where the metal pipe is normally bonded to the water supply pipe? Instead of a strap, the ground wire is screwed to the conduit where you would normally attach the bond strap. The ground wire then clamps to the water pipe. Seems okay, but first time I ain't seen a bond strap for bonding the electric pipe to the water pipe. Thanks for any insight.

I see it done this way frequently. It never occured to me that it would be a problem.

Sorry.. I forgot we were talking about water pipes now. Around here most areas require a ground wire be connected to the water service pipe for the secondary ground (such as bonding across the water meter). Some, however, don't require it here.
