Why would it take a week to remark the gas line?
TECO should have been out there with a metal detector that same day,how could they expect Posen to wait for five day's before remarking the gas main,that's ridiculous!
What's the deal,didn't TECO have someone who could have remarked the main within a couple hours,that's all it would've taken,they already had a decent idea of the location of the main,what was so hard about finding a gas line that they already found and marked out at one time,there should have been some marker's remaining to get a bearing from and then fill in the blanks from there using a metal detector,it's no big deal.
What gets me is that the TECO representative was obviously on scene when Posen was instructed to wait for the main to be remarked,although,they didn't stop the bulldozer operator from continuing to dig.
Where did TECO's representative go after telling Posen not to dig,did they just leave the site and wag their finger at Posen's men and say,"no digging now you silly gooses!",while jumping into their truck to go have a nap,or something?
Why didn't TECO's representative stay at the site to make sure no one started digging,there must have been some heated discussion when Posen found out they were going to be stopped from working for five day's until the main could be remarked,TECO's Representative should have known better than to simply pack up and leave after announcing that little tid-bit of information,they should have figured that Posen would start digging as soon as the TECO rep's turned their back's,which,it appears pretty clear to me,is exactly what Posen did.
I want to hear what Mario Santos has to say,who told him to dig,someone instructed him to continue,I can't see any other reason why a guy would risk his life,unless Mario's supervisor said,"If we don't start digging,there won't be any work for you this week,you'll have to wait until after the gas main is remarked on Friday."
Of course,the two entities involved are going to point an accusatory finger at each other,when,in all actuality,they're BOTH at fault.
