Current Bill Summary

SB 134 - This act revises the excavation notice system enacted in 1991. Current law authorizes an unlimited number of notification centers in the state and does not require that owners of underground pipes or wires register with a notification system. This act authorizes only one notification center in the state and requires all owners of underground facilities to register with the center. These provisions will apply from January 1, 2000. The act clarifies the duty of the owner to respond to requests to mark and re-mark an excavation site and the duty of the excavator to exercise reasonable care to ensure that the markings remain undisturbed.
