You're right. I forgot about the decomissioned pipelines.
you'd be surprised how stupid some of these morons with backhoes
remember a major MCI cut along their west coast route a few years
that took out the entire northwest for 8 hours. The guy was 600
away from where his permit allowed him to dig. He stopped when he
the fiber and shut his hoe down. When they got out there, they
that he was digging right next to train tracks, was inches from
a high voltage power line that surely would have killed him, and was
also fairly close to a gas line.
Is there any compensation to MCI in a situation like this? I would
think that multi million dollar fines would make people think a little
before they start digging.
