The article discusses telecommunications companies' demands for sewage providers to follow similar rules for line mapping. According to the article, utilities are required to locate their own lines and pay the cost incurred, but sanitation and sewage providers are not. The legislative committee reportedly wants to adopt Assembly Billl (AB) 32 on sewer-line location to exempt governments and government agencies from having to identify or mark the location of sewer service pipes or conduits.
