Meeting locations will rotate throughout Wisconsin, and will be published in the agenda one week prior to each meeting.
Goal: This Technical Standard Team will create a new technical standard that provides criteria for projects employing horizontal directional drilling (HDD). The standard will include procedures and practices to minimize potential for inadvertent releases associated with HDD and to respond to releases when they do happen.
This team will examine existing research, consider new technologies, propose criteria, and consider input from expert and public review.
Anticipated Publication Date: 2020
Work Team Status: This stakeholder team began meeting in October 2019. Meetings will be held approximately monthly until the standard is completed. Details on meetings, including agendas and meeting notes, will be available on the left side of this website as the work develops.
