Why Use a Utility Locator:

A Utility Locator or rather.. Utility location is the process of identifying and labeling public utility mains that include utility lines for telecom, electricity, natural gas, cable tv, fiber, traffic signals, drains, water mains, and wastewater pipes undreground.

For different types of underground lines, different detection and location methods are used, for example, metal pipes and cables, are often located with electromagnetic equipment, such as underground utility locators consisting of a transmitter and a receiver. For other types of pipe, such as plastic or concrete, other types of radiolocation or modern ground-penetrating radar must be used and you can locate them all here at AdvancedWorld.com.

United States Underground Utility Locating

In United States, Uniform Color Codes for temporary marking of underground utilities are below:

Red: electric power lines, cables, conduit, and lighting cables
Orange: telecommunication, alarm or signal lines, cables, or conduit
Yellow: natural gas, oil, steam, petroleum, or other gaseous or flammable material
Green: sewers and drain lines
Blue: drinking water
Purple: reclaimed water, irrigation, and slurry lines
Pink: temporary survey markings, unknown/unidentified facilities
White: proposed excavation limits or route

One-call for utility location:

As required by law in the United States and assigned by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the 8-1-1 telephone number is used for this purpose across the United States.

"Call before you dig", "Dial before you dig", "Digger's Hotline", "One-call", "Miss Utility", "Dig Safe", or Underground Service Alert are services that allow construction workers or homeowners to contact utility companies, who will then denote where underground utilities are located via color-coded markings typically up to and not past the user's service connection or meter. Lines on the other side of the meter or service connection are considered to be part of the customer's property and will typically not be located by these services.

Failure to call such a number ahead of time may result in a fine or even a criminal charge against a person or company, particularly if such negligence causes a major utility outage or serious accident, or an evacuation due to a gas leak. Hitting a water main may also trigger local flooding or require a boil-water advisory.
