Colorado 811In 2009 after many years of legislative work, ALCC was successful in exempting routine landscape maintenance from the existing utility locate statutes. There were many ancillary discussion and issues about damage prevention and utility locate process for contractors in the eight years that we pursued this legislation, and we prepared to be part of those subsequent discussions.

Currently, ALCC is working with Colorado Contractors Association (CCA) to gather information for a study commissioned by Colorado 811. The study will address the current pros and cons of Colorado’s current call-before-you dig system, with a specific focus on the following:

  • Pros/cons of Tier 2 membership
  • Pros/cons of stabling a central authority to enforce state damage prevention laws (aside from District Court)

To gather information for this study, the research team wants to hear from excavators, facility owners and other stakeholders. They will conduct phone surveys, focus groups, and one-on-one in-person interviews. If you are interested in participating in the study on behalf of ALCC, please contact Kristen Fefes at kfefes@alcc.com.  We will host a focus group in January. Phone interviews being as early as December 14.

The LAB will be updated as this project progresses.
