District 8 utility coordination


Utility coordination

District 8's utility coordination process involves many parties.

  • Project Managers are responsible for the overall project during the plan development process, or for a particular stage of project development in the plan development process.
  • Consulting engineers may also be involved with aspects of utility coordination, including project management.
  • Construction is involved early in the process to help assure a smooth transition from design to construction.
