Why do you need public and private utility locating?
There are many lines that could be buried just outside your building, home or in/around your property. For determining the exact location of public utility lines before you start your excavation project, you will need to call 8-1-1 to locate public utilities. However, a public utility locator will come to the property and ONLY mark any line like telephone, gas, cable television, traffic lights and street lights that leads to your property and that “they own”. That does not include any private lines that run from the main line to your property, such as secondary lines, private lines, buried tanks and septic systems can only be located by calling a private locating company.
