Overhead High Voltage Line Safety Act

Virginia's Overhead High Voltage Line Safety Act, which went into effect July 1, 2003, increases the protective work zone around overhead high-voltage lines and places greater responsibility on contractors who work near overhead power lines to be particularly mindful of their surroundings.

Contractors must call the appropriate utility - Dominion Energy - 866-366-4357 - before working near these lines and allow the proper safety arrangements to be put in place before commencing their work.
