State law requires that customers request the approximate locations of buried utilities to be marked at least two full business days before starting any digging project - even a simple ones like planting flowers or small shrubs.
One quick call or online request to the locating service notifies all utilities that locates have been requested. Underground distribution and service lines owned and maintained by all utilities will be marked with color-coded paint. This service is free of charge.
