DOT statistics show the majority of pipeline damage is caused by third parties digging near buried pipelines. "Third parties" are contractors and excavators, landscapers and fence builders, and land owners that are not controlled by the utility or its contractors. Third-party damage can be prevented by getting utility locates from One-Call.
Kentucky law requires anyone planning to dig or excavate to get information on type, location, and depth of all underground facilities in the area. The excavator must notify the Kentucky 811-Call Center at least two full working days before beginning work. The 811-Call center will notify member utilities with buried lines in the area. A Frontier representative will determine if the project is near its pipelines and send someone to clearly mark the location of its buried pipelines.
