KARL Response Changes Effective April 1, 2015
The following KARL code enhancements to add clarity to the status of a facility owner’s response on Design Tickets are effective April 1, 2015.
001 – Clear, No Facilities – This response indicates there are no underground facilities in conflict with the proposed work site. (Please note: This is an existing code and will not change.)
003 – Field Marked – This response indicates a locator was dispatched and physically marked lines at the work site. (Please note: This existing code description is now modified from “Marked” to “Field Marked.”)
082 – Design Conflict, Send Plans – This means the facility owner needs more information from the designer. This response indicates the facility owner has lines nearby and is requesting the designer send drawings in pdf format via the Drawing Exchange Portal, or by mailing hard copy drawings. (Please note: “082” replaces code “008”, which is discontinued.)
083 – Engineering Completed - a PDF file or marked up plans were sent to the requestor – This means the facility owner answered the designer. This response indicates the facility owner uploaded a pdf of their lines or marked up the pdf provided by the designer, both options available via the Drawing Exchange Portal, or the facility owner mailed hard copy marked up drawings to the requestor. (Please note: This is a new code.)
