Following a 2015 fatal gas explosion in Bakersfield, California, lawmakers made a one-year Area of Continual Excavation (ACE) ticket accessible to farmers and certain flood control operators. ACE tickets were designed to create a safe and less burdensome option to comply with the “call before you dig” law. This process will be available on July 1,2020.
The year-long ACE ticket can be requested at the farmer or flood control agent’s convenience and is valid for one year from the date of issue. Renewal is required within one year if work continues.
