Hearings set for complaint against contractor in Sun Prairie explosion

Wisconsin utility regulators have scheduled hearings on a complaint against a contractor involved in last summerís fatal Sun Prairie gas explosion.

The Public Service Commission will hold back-to-back sessions on June 14 to gather evidence on whether drilling company VC Tech violated state law when it failed to notify the state utility call center, known as Diggers Hotline, before starting work on July 10.

VC Tech workers struck an underground gas line while boring a hole for fiber-optic communications cable being installed by Verizon. The blast killed Cory Barr, a captain with the Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department, and injured two other firefighters.

The investigation stems from a complaint filed by USIC Locating Services, the company that was contracted to mark the locations of underground pipes.
