Colorado 811: Changes and Challenges Talk

  • 10455 Sheridan Boulevard Westminster, CO, 80020 United States (map)

Safety and accuracy are some of the most challenging issues damage prevention professionals face. Surprisingly communication among stalk holders can also a difficult part of the locating process.  On May 25, Governor Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 18-167 into law. This bill included the creation of the Underground Damage Prevention Safety Commission, effective August 8, 2018. The ratification of this law has started transitioning tier two members of the Utility Notification Center of Colorado, or Colorado 811, into tier one members. While the law will improve communication between all parties involved once its implemented, damage prevention work will drastically change over the next two years of transition. Join Brian Collison as he gives an overview of the changes included in the law, how tier two members can ease their transition to tier one and how this will affect home rule cities such as Denver or Colorado Springs. This talk will be of special interest for anyone who works with right of ways in the state of Colorado.
