    Default New addition to Tennessee 811

    Tennessee 811 has been modified to now force locators to do locates for surveys. I had to read it a few times to make sure i was reading it correctly.
    But the up side is that the locator cannot be held responsible for mismarking or misidentified pipes and or cables .
    Also the new mods have less teeth pertaining to fining contractors than before . Like they EVER went after a contractor before . This I know since I have proved and reported 3 contractors and nothing was ever done .
    Just a heads up for all those that fall under Tennessee 811.

    That is going to generate a ton more tickets! I wonder if this going to get contracted locators in trouble. If you mark a utility wrong, and are audited on it, would you get in trouble? Point to ponder.

    It states that the locator or company can't be held responsible for mismarking utilities.

    Well, you may not get in trouble with the state, but what about with your employer? There was a huge fuss about being off on locates by USIC years ago.
