Ohio's Utility Coordinating Councils



Ohio’s Utility Coordinating Councils are similar to our six Damage Prevention Councils. These Councils meet quarterly to share ideas, strategies and solutions to prevent damage to utility facilities during excavation. Utility owners and operators, contractors, locators, government agencies and others interested in damage prevention are welcome to attend. Contact Chuck Green at for more information.
