Event Details

TOPIC - ASCE 38 for Metropolitan Water District of Southern California:

 

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear from MWD Director Adan Ortega.  Director Ortega will update the chapter on MWD’s Twin Tunnels… or is it the Bay Delta Conservation Plan…err…a…now known as the California WaterFix.  Director Ortega will also discuss PFOS, PFOA, and COVID-19 as well as the implications of new State guidelines on Southern California’s water supplies.  This is your chance to dialog directly with California’s most influential water policy maker and understand the dynamics that are shaping California’s water system.  Director Ortega will also field questions on the implementation of ASCE Standard 38-02 (Mapping of Buried Utilities). Learn how MWD is protecting ratepayers while managing risks by using 38-02. 

 

 Link: ASCE 38 Information

In general, the standard contains provisions such that:

  • The project owner will be responsible for taking appropriate actions to consider and deal with utility risks. On many small projects, where few subsurface utilities are present, and/or where information about subsurface utilities is believed to be generally accurate and comprehensive, this will only involve making a conscious decision to proceed with the project using readily available information. On larger projects, where information about subsurface utilities is not believed to be generally accurate and comprehensive, this may involve employing the services of an engineer to provide expert advice and to use available technologies to provide better information.

  • The engineer will advise the project owner of utility risks and recommend an appropriate quality level of utility data for a given project area at the appropriate time within the project planning and design process. Such advice will take into account such items as type of project, expected utilities, available rights-of-way, project timetables, and so forth.

  • The project owner will specify to the engineer the desired quality level of utility data.

  • The engineer will furnish the desired utility quality level to the owner in accordance with the standard of care.

  • The engineer will be responsible for negligent errors and/or omissions in the utility data for the certified utility quality level.
