Volume 31-Issue 6, December 2017:
Accident Review

In Volume 31-6, we highlight utility excavation accidents of note in 2017. Utilities mis-marked, calls to 811 not made, maps not getting updated, laws unchanged, and underground lines struck at record levels – what is the solution? We also look into the public face of utility damages and discuss contractors as leaders for change in our industry. Read eye-opening interview with Stephanie Menning of MUCA, filming with Q3 Contracting in MN, GPR and more!
