Trench Cut Damage Evaluation Report for Santa Clara County by Chec Consultants Inc.

On December 3, 2002, the Department held a meeting with utility companies, cities and others who may wish to make future utility trench cuts on Santa Clara roadways. During discussion of a proposed Trench Cut Ordinance, several participants requested an opportunity to review and comment on Chec Consultants’ Trench Cut Damage Evaluation Report, which provides the basis for a proposed ordinance.

The Report is now available for review and comment on the Roads & Airports Department website.
