Following the requirements of Oregon’s excavation laws is vital to safety of underground facilities, workers and the public. If you believe these requirements are not being followed, we encourage you to file a complaint to report the probable violation.
Investigation of probable violations is complaint driven and administered by the OPUC. You can initiate this process by submitting a Request for Administrative Action (RAA) using this form (Link to form here please) or by contacting the PUC at (503) 378-6600 or 1-800-522-2404. You will be asked a series of questions and the information you provide in response will be forwarded to staff for investigation. Additional information, such as scans of photos or other documents, can be emailed to the PUC if required. Once enough information has been collected, staff will take appropriate action. Thanks for your commitment to making Oregon a safe place to live and work.
