Georgia Utility Facility Protection Act (GUFPA) and Pipeline Safety
The Georgia Utility Facility Protection Act, enacted by the Georgia Legislature in July 2000, provides
for the protection of the buried utility facility infrastructure within the State of Georgia. That protection is provided
by requiring excavators to call for a facility locate prior to excavating or blasting and requiring the facility owner/operator
to locate their facilities upon request. To file a report on a probable violation of the Georgia Utilities Facility Protection
Act (GUFPA), go to GUFPA Violation Reporting System. For information about Georgia's
one call system for locating and identifying underground facilities, go to
Georgia Utilities Protection Center - Call Before You Dig.
