As you may or may not know it is state law that contractors and excavators or anyone performing any type of excavation must notify 811 dig safe to give all utilities an opportunity to mark their underground locations. Utility companies who respond to locate requests, via the state “call before you dig” One-Call system, will only locate and mark facilities that they own. They will not mark those that are privately owned. In most cases there are private utilities present on private property and possibly in utility right-of-ways, streets and sidewalks that may not be covered by your one call request. It is usually the contractor's responsibility after notifying 811 of excavation to hire an outside company to identify more private underground utilities in the area. Adept Utility Locators is that company.
There are many underground utilities that are privately owned including:
- electric, gas
- water services.
Industrial complexes, commercial properties, and even, at times, private properties have privately owned underground utilities between the meters and other buildings on the property. By locating these facilities you can avoid design issues, large repair bills and personal injury. Adept Utility Locators offers many services to help home owners, contractors and facility owners identify the presence of potential private underground utilities in your dig area. Adept will help you save time and money by preventing unnecessary utility damage.
