• NSPS’ Tim Burch Era: Tim Burch, newly appointed executive director of NSPS, sits down for a question and answer session with xyHt.
• Dis-Located: You know those straight-line states in the West—Utah, Colorado, Wyoming—well, look closely and you’ll see they are anything but straight.
• Subsurface Utility Engineering is Growing: Millions of miles of underground utilities provide U.S. communities with vital services but can be dangerous when not mapped properly and located prior to new construction projects.
