In an effort to ensure common construction practices consistent with prevailing safety codes, MMUA and its members have produced a distribution system Specifications (Spec) Book. The book has proven to be a handy reference manual. It also promises to simplify mutual aid efforts, as a growing number of Minnesota municipal utilities build their systems to a consistent shared standard.
Mutual Aid Manual
Work on this manual has been ongoing for many years. It remains under development at this time.
