Standard Guideline for Recording and Exchanging Utility Infrastructure Data, ASCE/UESI/CI 75-22, specifies essential elements for documenting the location, geometry, and feature attributes of underground and aboveground utility infrastructure, with a particular focus on enabling creation of 3D digital twins for newly installed and/or exposed utility infrastructure.
This standard provides guidance about the collection and exchange of utility infrastructure data to support a wide range of uses including digital software applications that facilitate design and damage prevention activities. Use of the standard will ultimately lead to consistently reliable and user-friendly utility data that will facilitate better accommodation and safeguarding of utility infrastructure while expediting construction delivery with reduced risk. It supports the larger civil engineering task discipline called utility engineering (UE), which incorporates the elements affecting civil engineering projects of any kind as they relate to utilities. Utility engineering optimizes planning, design, and construction activities to control costs and mitigate risks to the project and to the public. Because the standard is not overly prescriptive, it supports both current and emerging digital project delivery standards and practices.
