A utility locator is indispensable in the clearing and preparation processes of digging safely outside for any project.

Without this expert opinion, you may unintentionally dig up utilities, which leads to costly repairs and severe repercussions for yourself or your business. A utility locator’s job is, first and foremost, to locate underground pipes and wires that lie within the area where you will be digging. They are crucial to determining where those important main lines and conduits will be situated. A utility locator will find these essential lines and mark them clearly on your land so that you can avoid a misstep and breaking or damaging government or commercial property.

While most states provide a free location service for utilities located on public land, their schedules are usually two or more days out.

A delay of this duration could easily disrupt services to a home or business leading to profit loss. Over 65% of all utilities are on Private land. State run location services do not locate on private property. By providing a licensed and certified location service that is available anytime we hope to offer a much needed alternative to the normal wait that often accompanies utility repairs.

There are many underground utilities that are privately owned including:

  • electric
  • gas
  • telecommunications
  • sewer
  • water services
