NUCA Chapter News: Ohio’s Kelly Appointed to Underground Technical Committee

nuca of ohioNUCA of Ohio would like to congratulate John Kelly of Ed Kelly & Sons Inc. for his reappointment to the Ohio Underground Technical Committee. NUCA of Ohio was proud to nominate Kelly as our member representative to this critical regulatory committee. Kelly will continue his service to the industry in this capacity representing the voice of our contractors on the PUCO’s underground damage enforcement process.

The Underground Technical Committee (UTC) was created in December 2014 as a part of the Underground Damage Prevention Law. Housed in the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO), the UTC provides subject matter expertise and recommendations during excavation violation reviews. The goal of the UTC is to increase public safety by providing accountability of members of the Ohio Utility Protection Service (OUPS) and all excavators and utility operators.
