The NRCGA hosted its annual Excavator Event on Thursday, Nov. 6. The event featured a barbeque dinner, short utility presentations from damage prevention experts, and, of course, lots of raffle prizes! Thomas Georgi, Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD), was the event organizer/host, while volunteers from utility companies and Trench Shoring helped at the event. The event was sponsored by the city of Henderson, LVVWD, NV Energy, NUCA, Southwest Gas, Cox, CenturyLink, AT&T, USA North 811, Kern River Gas, and ELM. More than 100 contractors, locators and utility folks attended.
