Communicating with Excavators
49 CFR Sections 192.614(c) and 195.442(c) require operators to identify excavators in the area around their pipelines and provide both the public and these excavators with information about the One-Call process. Section 192.614(e) exempts operators, other than municipalities whose primary activity does not include the transportation of gas, from the requirements to identify excavators and provide One-Call information. Master meter operators and some propane vapor distribution operators are typically exempted under this section. These requirements and exemptions are currently in effect, but identifying excavators and providing One-Call information is also required by API RP 1162.
