Utility Line Assignment Permit
Authorization of utility and monitoring well installations within public road rights-of-way by external agencies and private utilities must first enter into an agreement with the City of Edmonton.
The agreement usually takes the form of a Right of Way Consent & Access Agreement or a Franchise Agreement. A standard condition of the agreements is that all utility installations require City approval in the form of a Utility Line Assignment (ULA) Permit.
Applications for ULA permits include utility alignment plans showing where new underground or aerial utility lines will be built, or where environmental testing will occur on City road rights-of-way.
The applicant that is proposing the installation, the Right-of-Way Management Group, other utility department and agencies, and civic departments all play a role in reviewing, approving, construction, inspecting and/or recording information on these installations.
Utility Line Assignment (ULA) applications are now processed online. The City of Edmonton’s Transportation Services, Operations Branch has implanted a new web-based application process for ULA’s to be processed by the Right-of-Way Management Group.
To complete a ULA application, you can either attach a digital copy of your tentative plan or indicate that hard copies will be sent. Acceptable file types are: doc, pdf and jpg. Confirmation of your application will be sent to the email indicated in the application.
