More Digging, More Damage:
How Utilities Are Preparing for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Wednesday, August 17th | 11am PST/ 2pm EST


About the webinar

There is still a lot to be determined about the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Still, one thing is sure - more construction leads to increased asset risk and more damage to existing utility assets. To mark this year’s 811 Day, we assembled a panel of thought leaders in utility damage prevention to hear how the IIJA has influenced their plans and preparations for preventing damage from the coming surge in nationwide construction and infrastructure upgrades.

Topics covered:

  • How different industries are forecasting the impact of the IIJA on asset protection
  • What underground asset operators are doing to prepare for the coming surge
  • What retention and training programs you should adopt to ready your workforce
  • How electric utilities can plan to protect a forthcoming national charging grid
