First Call Locating Is your first call after NC811. “We start where 811 Stops”
The law requires you to call 811 and have your public utilities marked before you dig. However, public utility companies will only locate the facilities they own (utilities that run meter to main like electric, gas, oil, telephone, and water). So we mark the underground utilities and structures 811 does not.
We provide private utility locating services for:
What is the difference between “public” and “private” utilities?
Public utilities are the electric, gas, phone/cable, water and sewer lines that are brought in to a point by agencies such as Verizon, Duke Power and Piedmont Natural Gas. They determine where their responsibility ends. And the area of responsibility can vary from place to place. So you may want to find out where their responsibility ends and where yours begins! As an example: Some cities are responsible for the water service line from the street connection all the way in to the main structure. Others are only responsible from the street connection to the water shut off valve in the yard or at the property line. Consequently, you’re responsible from that point into the main structure!
Private utilities are the electric, gas, phone/cable, water and sewer lines that are added beyond the responsibility point of the public agencies.
• Electric lines that go to outbuildings such as sheds, pole barns, garages, pools, etc.
• Gas lines that go to grills, pools, or outbuildings;
• Phone/Cable lines to outbuildings; Water or Sewer lines to outbuildings.
• A septic system, well, or irrigation system are also “private”.
Are location markings 100% accurate and are all utilities traceable?
No marked utility is 100% accurate. But the equipment used to find those utilities is very good. However, you need to understand that these utilities are underground and can’t visually be seen. We suggest a 2 feet leniency on either side of the marked lines to ensure safety or should it be hand dug (or pot-holed) so that the utility can be safely verified.
