A Day at the Indiana URC
Bill Boyd is Director, Pipeline Safety Division for the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.
Dan Novak is Program Manager, Pipeline Safety Division for the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.
It was May when the PUF team traveled to Indianapolis and received a warm welcome at the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. Commissioners and Staff educated us about Indy, also known as Circle City, as the statehouse was planned around Monument Circle. It's reminiscent of Washington, and not surprising as a surveyor for Pierre L'Enfant, who designed our nation's capital city, with its many traffic circles, helped design the Indy town plan.
PUF: Bill, what is your role at the Commission?
Bill Boyd: My main role is to provide direction for the Pipeline Safety Division. There is a lot we are responsible for. It's essentially administering and requiring compliance with state and federal pipeline safety regulations. I allocate resources and decide what we need to do. It's an ongoing process.
