Newly Updated ASCE 38-22 Utility Engineering Standard and New Companion Standard ASCE 75-22 Now Available

These utility standards are the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) solution to reducing redesign, unnecessary utility relocations and differing site conditions and associated costs.

According to ASCE, previously titled Standard Guidelines for the Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data, ASCE 38-02, the updated ASCE 38-22 has been re-issued and renamed from its previous edition to more succinctly convey its purpose. This standard guides engineers in performing utility investigations during project development work to help them design projects that have minimal impact to existing utilities: protecting engineers, project owners, utility owners and the public from utility related claims. This updated standard contains significant commentary and examples, new and revised definitions, and new provisions learned from the experiences of its last 20 years of use.
