What New Legislation Means to Contractors Installing Underground Utilities (WWETT Show 2023)

March 23, 2023

Cross bore mitigation is driving new legislation on how underground utilities are installed. To protect the current infrastructure, surrounding communities and utility professionals, certain safeguards are being implemented that can have a profound impact on our industry. This presentation will detail the new mandates in the California legislation. In part, contractors are now required to perform both pre and post bore inspections on existing utilities and provide mapping of existing and newly installed utilities. We will discuss procedures that contractors will need to follow and the equipment that will allow them to do so. While this legislation is currently only active in California, these types of mandates will spread to other regions of the country.

1. Outline new legislation and mandates related to how underground utilities are installed 

2. Explain how this new legislation will impact underground utility contractors and the underground utility industry 

3. Discuss procedures that contractors will need to implement to follow the new mandates

4. Discuss equipment that will allow contractors to follow the new mandates
