Enforcement

Welcome to the Diggers Hotline Enforcement Center

The enforcement Center website is where complaints can be submitted. All complaints are subject to the parameters set out in Wisconsin State Statutes 182.0175.

 

Complaints will only be accepted for incidents involving natural gas or other hazardous materials.

 

No person may file a complaint more than 120 days after the discovery of an alleged violation.

 

Complaints will only be accepted from the department of transportation or a political subdivision, a transmission facility owner, excavator or underground line locator whose property or activities are affected by an alleged violation of 182.0175.

 

Complaints against state agencies must be filed with the Public Service Commission, not through Diggers Hotline.

 

Damage to a buried utility is not required for a complaint to be filed.

 

In order to file a complaint, you will need to sign in with a user name and password. Click here to begin that process or if you already have a login.

 

Once a complaint has been filed, it will be reviewed to determine if it is a valid complaint. If it is a valid complaint, the alleged offending party of your submitted information will be notified of the complaint.  Once a response has been received, all of the pertinent information will be shared with a panel of stakeholders.

 

The stakeholders will determine whether or not there is probable cause that an action occurred that the alleged offending party knew or should have known was in violation of 182.0175. If probable cause is found, the panel will decide between education or referring to the Wisconsin Public Service Commission.
