Subpart 1.

Application required.

When a local government unit requires a permit for excavation in or obstruction of its public right-of-way, a person wishing to undertake a project within the public right-of-way shall submit a right-of-way permit application, which may require the filing of mapping information pursuant to subpart 2.

Subp. 2.


The local government unit may require as part of its permit application the filing of all the following information:


location and approximate depth of applicant's mains, cables, conduits, switches, and related equipment and facilities, with the location based on:


offsets from property lines, distances from the centerline of the public right-of-way, and curb lines as determined by the local government unit;


coordinates derived from the coordinate system being used by the local government unit; or


any other system agreed upon by the right-of-way user and local government unit;


the type and size of the utility facility;


a description showing aboveground appurtenances;


a legend explaining symbols, characters, abbreviations, scale, and other data shown on the map; and


any facilities to be abandoned, if applicable, in conformance with Minnesota Statutes, section 216D.04, subdivision 3.

Subp. 3.

Changes and corrections.

The application must provide that the applicant agrees to submit "as built" drawings, reflecting any changes and variations from the information provided under subpart 2, items A to E.

Subp. 4.

Additional construction information.

In addition, the right-of-way user shall submit to the local government unit at the time the project is completed a completion certificate according to part 7819.1300.

Subp. 5.

Manner of conveying permit data.

A right-of-way user is not required to provide or convey mapping information or data in a format or manner that is different from what is currently utilized and maintained by that user. A permit application fee may include the cost to convert the data furnished by the right-of-way user to a format currently in use by the local unit of government. These data conversion costs, unlike other costs that make up permit fees, may be included in the permit fee after the permit application process.

Subp. 6.

Data on existing facilities.

At the request of a local government unit, a right-of-way user shall provide existing data on its existing facilities within the public right-of-way in the form maintained by the user at the time the request was made, if available.
