5.33 Facility Owner Provides a Monitor During Excavation

Practice Statement:

If a facility owner/operator considers it necessary to be on site during excavation activities to work with the excavator in protecting their existing facilities, the facility owner/operator makes arrangements with the excavator to be present during those excavation activities within the time specified by state/provincial law.

Practice Description:

The facility owner/operator may determine it necessary to be on site during excavation activities taking place near their facilities to help protect them. A facility owner/operator has access to information and resources that may not be available to the excavator. This practice should be considered in conjunction with Practice Statement 2–4: Utility Coordination.
