     2  adding a new subdivision 9 to read as follows:
     3    9.  Notwithstanding  any  general or special law to the contrary, each
     4  operator shall give notice to the department of each incident  involving
     5  damages  to  underground  facilities  at the earliest practicable moment
     6  following discovery of said incident, in such form as the department may
     7  require. Within sixty days of notice of an incident under  this  section
     8  and  after  a  preliminary  investigation,  the  department shall post a
     9  notice on its website describing whether it will investigate  the  inci-
    10  dent  to determine its cause or causes and any contributing factors.  In
    11  the event the department determines not to investigate the incident,  it
    12  shall  set  forth  the reasons for its decision. Nothing in this section
    13  shall be construed to affect or modify the authority of the commissioner
    14  under state or federal law.

    18  operator shall give notice to the department of public service  of  each
    19  incident  involving  damages  to  underground facilities at the earliest
    20  practicable moment following discovery of said incident, in such form as
    21  such department may require. Within sixty days of notice of an  incident
    22  under this section and after a preliminary investigation, the department
    23  of  public service shall post a notice on its website describing whether
    24  it will investigate the incident to determine its cause  or  causes  and
