PSC ENFORCEMENT OF KENTUCKY’S UNDERGROUND FACILITY PROTECTION LAW
Effective July 14, 2018, the Kentucky Public Service Commission is responsible for enforcing Kentucky’s Underground Facility Protection statute, commonly known as the call-before-you-dig law, as it pertains to natural gas and hazardous liquid pipelines.
This means that the PSC will investigate incidents of excavation-caused damage to natural gas and hazardous liquid pipelines, and may assess such penalties as are appropriate. The provisions of the statute apply, with some exceptions, to excavation activities conducted by utility service providers, licensed professionals such as plumbers or other contractors, and individuals, including property owners.
