Subsurface Utility Engineering

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is a process that has been known to save potentially thousands of dollars in underground pipeline design simply by addressing wet and dry pipeline utility conflicts well in advance of any subsurface utility installation. Subsurface utility engineering is necessary in the design phase when planning, for example, a construction project that requires new or upgraded sewer, water pipeline, or storm drainage systems.

Subsurface utility engineering encompasses many different engineering activities. According to the standard for SUE, developed in 2003 by The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of Subsurface Utility Data, Subsurface Utility Engineering is defined as a branch of engineering practice that involves managing certain risks associated with: utility mapping at appropriate quality levels, utility coordination, utility relocation design and coordination, utility condition assessment, communication of utility data to concerned parties, utility relocation cost estimates, implementation of utility accommodation policies, and utility design.
