December 28, 1976

Mr. Joseph A. Cox
Chairman, Utilities
Board of the City of Florala
1407 Wall Street
Florala, Alabama 36442

Dear Mr. Cox:

This refers to your letter dated September 27, 1976, in which you ask if the Utilities Board of the City of Florala's planned electrical survey consisting of "a pipe-to-soil survey, atmospheric corrosion survey, pH survey, and determination (and protection) of any 'hot spots'" meets the requirements of 49 CFR 192.457(b) and 1982.465(e).

It is our opinion that the planned electrical survey as described above would meet the requirements of §§192.457(b) and 192.465(e) provided that it was carried out by or under the
direction of a person qualified by experience and training in pipeline corrosion control methods.


Cesar DeLeon
Acting Director
Office of Pipeline
