    Hide Details

    The word “utility” implies usefulness to the public, but surveyors may find that what is considered a “utility” in one place is not always a utility in another jurisdiction. The distinction between regulated and unregulated utilities defines the legal rights and protections these utilities may have, or the restrictions to which they may be subject. The distinction also affects how surveyors access or interpret information about the location of utilities. The statutes and case law included in this class are intended to help those who plan or stake out new or relocated utility facilities, or recover existing utility locations in the field.
