DCA

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Distribution Contractors Association has taken the initiative to address cross bore issues as they relate to the underground construction community. The DCA Government Relations Committee, co-chaired by Greg Dahl of ARB and Dave Wizniewski of Vermeer, led the effort to create a position paper on this safety issue of critical importance not only to the gas distribution industry, but all aspects of underground work.

Members of the Distribution Contractors Association (DCA) will gather in New Orleans from Feb. 7-12, for the association’s 54th Annual Convention.
