For Ditch Diggers, by Ditch Diggers.

NUCA is the National Utility Contractors Association — the leading trade association working solely for the utility construction and excavation industry in the United States. NUCA’s nationwide network of state/regional Chapters and member companies represent utility contractors, excavators, suppliers, manufacturers, and other providers in the water, sewer, gas, electric,  treatment plant, telecommunications, and excavation industries.


NUCA was formed in 1964 when a handful of visionary contractors digging for a better future signed the association’s articles of incorporation. The original statement of purpose referred to the association’s mission “to represent the common interests of utility contractors at hearings, meetings and conferences held by legislative and public administrative bodies on a national, state and local level.” From that time forward, NUCA has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the underground utility and excavation contracting industry before legislators and regulators, succeeding in thwarting laws and rules that threatened our industry’s viability and profitability and pushing for those helpful to our members’ businesses and the environment in which they operate.


Our chapter was founded in 2018 and officially launched in February of 2019. Learn more in this article from Utility Contractor Magazine.
