About the event


There have been many graphics developed over the years to try to explain SUE and ASCE 38 Quality Levels.  All have led to misunderstandings about how SUE was intended to be practiced, ranging from SUE is a vacuum truck to SUE must be a linear progression of Utility Quality Levels.  With the extensive rewrite of ASCE 38 and a 20 year history of its use, two new graphics were recently developed to provide a better visualization.  This webinar will present those two graphics with an annotated explanation and time for some Q&A.
