Control Point Associates, Inc. has announced that Morgan Abele has joined the firm to expand their Subsurface Utility Locating division.
Morgan Abele has worked in the underground utility locating industry for 34 years. Starting out in the industry on a temporary basis, he discovered a passion for the work and the clients he served. Enjoying the challenges and diversity, Morgan has found endless opportunity to apply his knowledge in new and interesting ways. Throughout his career, he has worked with many public and private sector clients and completed projects for many government agencies, including the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, and Environmental Protection Agency.
As an expert in Subsurface Utility Locating, Morgan has worked on some unique projects. A few of the most notable was the mapping of a 114 building, 260-acre pharmaceutical site; leak detecting a 375-mile gas distribution system; developing a method to locate plastic propane lines lacking tracer wire, providing the industry a way to locate, permanently mark, and map jurisdictional systems; and an island-wide water main replacement project in the Bahamas.
“I am very excited to join the team at Control Point. The quality and professionalism of the entire organization provide a whole other level of capability for our current and future clients. I look forward to being part of the efforts to expand our company and its capabilities.”
Morgan Abele, Director of Subsurface Utility Locating
Morgan Abele was part of the founding group of the utility locating trade organization, the National Utility Locating Contractors Association (NULCA), as well as part of the original committee for the Common Ground Alliance (CGA), which guides the industry’s damage prevention efforts. A long-time advocate of damage prevention in the United States, he has also spread the word in China, the Bahamas, Nigeria, Uganda, and other countries around the globe. As a steward of the industry, Morgan works alongside local, state, and federal agencies to continually improve industry standards and policies.
