File a Dig Law Complaint
If you feel a violation of the state dig law has occurred, you can file a complaint with the Washington Dig Law Safety Committee.
The committee will hear complaints and make recommendations to the UTC for enforcement action.
The committee, created by state law, is made up of 13 current members representing a variety of stakeholders throughout the digging and utility industry including a UTC staff member, with three seats open to any industry. Committee terms are three years, and members can serve multiple terms.
Ex Officio members run the day-to-day operations of the Washington Dig Law Safety Committee, and previously served terms as committee members.
