Furnace Vent?

I'm looking for some help in what to do with my deck project. I attached the ledger to the concrete foundation. The furnace vent exits the house through the rim of the house. The clean air intake pipe has an elbow pointing down to the deck floor and the exhaust pipe goes up about 20 inches and has an elbow pointing away from the house.

My question is what do I need to do with these vents? My tought was that the exhaust pipe was ok but I should cut a hole in the decking and route the air intake pipe below the deck.

I also have a vent from the kitchen stove fan....does this need rerouted?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Got a picture?
Is this a second story deck?
Reason I ask is attaching just to a masonry wall is not allowed here unless it's through bolted.
Did you get a permit for this deck?
The reason I ask is in most cases I would not be allowed to have a deck where a water heater or furnace vent was due to CO2.

This is a second story deck. I did get a permit. The deck was attached using Thrubolts.

Should be asking your building inspector these questions.
If it was mine I would have done just that, add onto the intake so it's getting air from under the deck.
It's not going to be able to get air once there's snow on that deck.
How much clearance is there from the doors threshold to the deck?
In your area there should have been at least 6".
