Importance Of Utility Locating
Underground Utility Locating is important anytime you are going to break ground on a property or job site. Utility maps identify what type of underground cables and pipes are running through the site and their location. These utilities include power cables, gas pipes, water, telecommunication cables, storm drains, and abandoned/unknown underground services.
Our underground utility locating services aim to give you a comprehensive report of what’s underground, helping you ensure a safer work environment and avoid preventable utility damage. Once our team have identified and marked out the locations of your detectible underground cables and pipes, we can then arrange the utility mud mapping process.
