Florida One Call Legislation Revisions

The State of Florida has revised its excavation damage prevention regulations in Title XXXIII – Regulation of Trade? Commerce? Investments? and Solicitations; Chapter 556 – Underground Facility Damage Prevention and Safety, to require excavators that damage underground utilities resulting in a release of products regulated by PHMSA to call 911. It also requires the operator to report any damage to the one call system, at least annually. It also allows state agencies to share in revenues from penalties related to one call violations.
