Integrating technology into subsurface utility engineering projects. J.H. Anspach. Pipeline Gas J., June 1996, 223(6), 41--44.

The application of subsurface utility engineering (SUE) for risk control is described. Effects of underground utilities on pipeline projects are reviewed and risk aspects due to utility congestion in narrow right-of-way corridors and nearby population areas in urban environments are discussed. Cost savings achieved by using SUE technology are reviewed. Use of SUE technology in pipeline relocation design, right-of-way issues, and cathodic protection requirements is described. The technique integrates existing and new technologies to manage risks created on virtually all types of projects that involve pipeline construction work.
