Colorado Subsurface Utility Law (SB18-167) Collaborative Rollout Trainings

The regional, half-day trainings will be focused toward design professionals with an emphasis on the American Society of Civil Engineers Standard Guidelines for the Collection & Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data (ASCE 38-02), which is referenced in the new law. These trainings are for agency engineers, consulting engineers and land surveyors, utility engineers, and data keepers.

The Denver-area, all-day training will include both design and construction focuses. This training is for agency engineers, consulting engineers and land surveyors, utility engineers, data keepers, and contractors. This event is being planned also in cooperation with Colorado Contractors Association.

At all trainings, engineers from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will present how they are implementing the law’s new requirements.
