Mission Statement

Forging a better understanding and stronger relationship between State government, the Utility Owners, and their representatives to address each other’s needs. Our aim is to create positive and cooperative working relationships that benefit the people of Maryland, State DOT, the City and Counties, and the Utility Owners, whereby issues and conflicts can be identified, discussed, and resolved amongst stakeholders in an efficient and timely manner. Further, we intend to provide industry knowledge and improve partnering with a focus on utility identification, design, coordination, and construction.
