Utility Survey Requirements
Updated September 10, 2018
The Department now requires that all underground utility facilities be collected to survey grade accuracy and electronic as-built records delivered with each permit or project.
Below is a template to help as a resource for fields that may need to be collected. No all fields will be applicable to all utilities.
Once a collection is complete it shall be delivered to Corey Nelson and/or Paul Wheeler for uploading into the Utility Database.
If you have any questions please contact Corey Nelson or Paul Wheeler.
