Working in Proximity to Electrical Distribution Lines

Section 10 of the Regulation defines the requirements for placing objects in proximity to overhead and underground distribution lines. Two guidelines, Proximity to Distribution Lines and Interim Guideline for Excavating in the Proximity of Underground Distribution Lines dealing with distribution line excavation have been produced.

The Interim Guideline for Excavating in the Proximity of Underground Distribution Lines is available in electronic format only - you can view, download and print it by opening the link below. Please note that ESA no longer has pocket sized copies of the Excavating Guideline for order.
