811 – Call before you dig services will only perform locates to the service meter and not beyond as these are generally considered as “private utilities” and will require a private utility locator to locate

Private Utility not covered by 811 service

  • All buried utilities are considered as “private” if they are installed after a service meter.
  • If a utility meter is located at the street, all forward lines & service to the home are considered as private utilities.
  • Private utilites can be hidden/buried anywhere to support pools, spa’s, detached garage lighting, irrigation, propane or other gas services….to homes or even BBQ’s & heating ammenities on an outside patio.
  • Private utility locates are very important before installing a fence, sprinkler system,….even planting a tree! Even if the “free” call before you dig services are called ahead, unless you are aware that you have “private utilities” on the property, you wouldn’t likely know if there are additional dangers below unless you called for a Private Utility Locate.

Septic tank locating

Septic Tank LocatingMost septic tanks can be located by a signal produced by a flushed transmitter that is specifically designed for septic tank locating. Knowing the location of your septic tank is essential for performing maintenance on the tank. Homeowners should locate the septic tank so they can watch for early signs of problems with the septic system.

Water Service Line Locating

Most water service lines are non metalic and non traceable by traditional electronic means unless a tracer wire is additionally installed. If you don’t know where your water line is and need to know, we can locate the line (metallic or non-metallic, with or without tracer wire) for you and mark it on your property.

Acoustic Pipe Locators: An acoustic locator is used to identify and trace nonmetal water lines. The locator consists of a transonde and a receiver. The transonde is attached to the water line either at a fire hydrant, faucet or tap. The transonde sends a sound wave through the water in the pipe. Once located, the pipe’s position can be marked on the ground surface.
