The ASCE 38-02 Standard
CFL Knows ASCE 38-02
Utility location is about maximum safety and managing risk. To best mitigate risk factors at your job site, it’s critical to hire a utility locating service that holds themselves to the highest standards. CFL adheres to the standards of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which has developed and maintains a crucial standard entitled the Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data, CI/ASCE 38-02. You can be confident our team of professionals strictly follows all procedures to remain compliant with these standards:
Quality Level D: The information has been gathered through the collection of existing records or the transfer of oral knowledge.
Quality Level C: The information has been gathered surveying and plotting any visible utility features above the ground surface, and through the use of professional judgement in the correlation of the date with Quality Level D.
Quality Level B: The information has been gathered by applying the necessary geophysical surface methodology to identify the presence and approximate positioning of horizontal subsurface utilities.
Quality Level A: The precise location of both horizontal and vertical utilities has been identified through the exposure and specific measurement of of subsurface utilities.
CFL is also an Associate Member of Florida’s Sunshine State One Call System and utilizes the standards in the Best Practices Manual from the Common Ground Alliance (CGA). CFL strives to enhance the safety of workers and the community, while preventing damage to underground utilities.
