Underground utilities can be damaged by something as innocent as a simple shovel, causing costly damage, injuring your team members and delaying your project for days.
We don’t just locate and mark utilities within your dig zone and the public right-of-way, we can locate, survey and document all private-side utilities within your entire project area with a complete Subsurface Utility Investigation (SUI).
By incorporating our PositivelD technology combining GPR, Electromagnetic locating, concrete scanning and other tools, along with air-powered potholing excavation, Underground Solutions can give you accurate private utility location data that you can trust now and in the future – faster and more cost-effectively than any of our competitors in California.
Clearly mark the area where you will dig by drawing a box outlining the area using white paint or wood stakes.
Be prepared to provide the address and general location of the project, project start date and type of digging activity.
USI will oversee the entire process, including opening a ticket (if necessary) and locating and marking all underground utilities and other buried services.
Leave utility flags, stakes or paint marks in place until you have finished digging. If you’re seeking confidence about the location of underground utilities, ask USI to use PositivelD and air-powered potholing.
