Question:
What is a Service Cut Permit?

ANSWER:
A service cut permit is an online authorization allowing a utility company to work on their existing facilities, within the road right of way. Excavations equal to or smaller than 5 feet wide and 20 feet long are considered service cuts. Utility companies must obtain an annual blanket excavation permit in order to utilize this service.
