UTC proposing changes to Washington’s Dig Safe Law

Significant changes were made to Washington’s “Dig Safe Law” in 2011 by the Legislature through the passage of E2SHB 1634. That bill included a requirement that the Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) report on the effectiveness of the damage prevention program by December 2015. The UTC has issued that report and it includes recommendations for further changes to our Dig Safe Law.

An excellent summary of the proposed changes is available on MRSC’s website here. If you have significant concerns with the changes being proposed by the UTC, please share them with us by contacting Dave Catterson.
