Damage Prevention Committee (DPC)

The DPC is a peer-based group of 13 representatives, nominated by their industry or affiliated organization and appointed by the PUC.  Creation of the committee was authorized by Act 50 of 2017, which enhances Pennsylvania's Underground Utility Line Protection Act - also known as the "One Call Law." The focus of the DPC is to reduce the number of "hits" on underground lines and utilities.
