MnOPS Moving Forward With One-Call Law Changes

December 20, 2019

The Office of Pipeline Safety (MNOPS) is moving forward with proposed changes to Minnesota’s One-Call Law (Minnesota Statute 216D). In a media release, it said these proposed changes are in response to statewide issues and an increase in complaints received in 2019.


MNOPS made additional revisions to its proposed statutory changes after feedback from November meetings. You can view those changes here. The changes will be discussed during the upcoming January meetings. MMUA and several municipal utilities participated in these meetings.


MNOPS said it values the feedback it has already received on these changes and "looks forward to continued conversations with stakeholders as we work through this process."
