This is an archived website page from 2016

Most Pennsylvania residents and business want to keep our state’s delicate forests, wetlands and other natural spaces protected. When your work requires you to access utility poles in these areas, it’s important to ensure everything is done aboveboard and in a responsible manner. At the same time, however, you need to manage administrative workflows effectively. Delays due to permitting issues are simply unacceptable, and they can quickly eat into your profits.


If your project involves work in environmentally protected areas, Katapult Engineering’s utility permit tracker makes it easy to view and manage your applications in real time! The process of submitting an application to the Environmental Group at PPL used to be tedious and filled with phone calls and paperwork. Now, Katapult Engineering puts the tools and functionality you need right at your fingertips.


The Environmental Group at PPL Electric Utilities tracks and maintains permitting records for hundreds of utility poles and other structures in environmentally protected areas. Using the Katapult Engineering utility permit tracker, project managers have instant, at-a-glance access to all current and in-process permits. This makes it easier to ensure compliance with all relevant regulations. This online database allows users to search by region, project name, contractor name or permit status, and to track applications from their creation to the time the job is done.


Katapult Engineering’s online utility permit tracker is just one of the many convenient web services we offer for anyone performing work on public utility poles in Pennsylvania. With our services, you can:
