Colorado’s Underground Damage Prevention stakeholders maintain a very strong record for public safety and damage prevention, with no deaths for over 5-years and 2 injuries in 2014. Despite the many efforts that underlie this strong record, reported underground facility damages have recently begun trending upward, with a 24% increase in gas distribution pipeline damages from 2013 to 2014.
