Locating buried non-utility lines on your property

Helping us locate buried non-utility lines (and anything past your meters) on your property will help avoid accidents. You can mark these lines by using yard flags, spray painting the approximate lines on your lawn or by speaking with our crew’s foreman on site.

  • Sprinkler systems
  • Propane lines
  • Buried electric fences
  • Drainage pipes
  • Water, electric, and/or natural gas lines past the meter- these are considered private, so utility companies typically locate their side of the lines, which might not include the additional lines running through your yard.
  • Future backyard projects- if you’re planning on doing renovations in your backyard in the coming months or years, such as digging a pool, let us know. We can run our lines around your planned project area to prevent having to move our lines once the future project construction begins.
