PART 503 – SAFETY
SUBPART A – ENGINEERING ACTIVITIES AFFECTING UTILITIES
WY 503.02 (e) General Considerations
(1) In Wyoming, the following procedure will be followed:
(a) Take adequate precautions to minimize hazards from or damages to all
utilities, both overhead and underground, during location, investigation,
design and construction of any works carried out under any NRCS
(b) Landowners or operators are to be notified of their liability concerning
damage to utilities or resulting damage created by such action. They are
to be informed that NRCS makes no representation as to the existence or
nonexistence of any utilities. By reviewing and signing the CPA-5 form,
the landowner is acknowledging responsibility and liability for damage to
utilities. State law requires that landowners planning to excavate, or
designing a project that requires excavation, obtain information from
persons with underground facilities, as to the nature, location, and depth if
known, of the underground facility.
(c) NRCS may be held responsible for damage done by its employees during
site investigations performed by the NRCS or under their direction.
NRCS employees are to be aware of all overhead and underground
utilities in and near sites where design investigations are carried out.
Show only the location of known utilities on the construction drawings.
Include this note on the first page (cover) all construction drawings:
