Abstract: Development of the referenced Standard began in 1996. It is slated for publication in summer of 2002. The intent of this standard guideline is to present a system of classifying the quality of data associated with existing subsurface utilities. Such a classification will allow the project owner, engineer, constructor, and utility owner to develop strategies to reduce risk by improving the reliability of information on existing subsurface utilities in a defined manner. This document, as a reference or as part of a specification, will assist engineers, project and utility owners, and constructors in understanding utility data quality level classifications.
