Revised Louisiana Dig Laws Effective August 1!

For the third consecutive year the 2012 Louisiana Legislature has amended Louisiana’s Underground Utilities and Facilities Damage Prevention Act.

(See related article in the May 2012 Edition of the DOT Pipeline Compliance News.)

An updated version of the law is available on Louisiana One Call’s website where you’ll also find this handy link to the legislature’s markup of the law as enrolled, with new wording underscored and deleted sections struck through.
