ASCE’S Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) will hold its sixth UESI Utility Investigation School from Dec. 16-19 in Golden, Colorado.


This short course will give practitioners the knowledge and tools to provide competent utility investigations in accordance with accepted national standards (ASCE 38) and to defend against claims through this knowledge and its documentation.

It will discuss the interface between CO SB 167 and ASCE 38. The lecture series will include three 10-hour days, with testing. In addition to the classroom lectures, a one-day field-practicum will be held where participants will be offered hands-on experience with the GPR, PCL, and other tools.


This four-day school will be taught by the foremost experts in the geophysics and subsurface utility engineering field. Colorado DOT will also speak on their compliance and permitting program with SB 167.


This four-day school has been designed for:



  • Engineers and surveyors and project managers providing deliverables that include results and depictions of utility investigations.

  • Consulting engineers, employees of utility companies, state DOTs and local highway agencies, regulatory agencies, local governments, etc.


The school is held in conjunction with the Buried Asset Management Institute-International (BAMI-I) and Colorado School of Mines and will take place at the Colorado School of Mines.
