Do I Really Need a Private Locator?2022-11-20T21:28:01+00:00

Everyone needs a private locator. The State 1-Call system doesn’t get it all. It is the law to call before you dig, but calling the NC 1 call, Miss Utility Virginia, or any state utility locating service is not only call you need to make. On most properties, such as colleges, hospitals, and industrial sites, there are many more utilities owned by the property than public utilities. At every residence, there can be water and sewer lines, septic tanks and leach lines, multiple private utility lines, propane lines, or drinking water wells that WILL NOT BE LOCATED when the free service is notified. Should a line be overlooked, people can get hurt, serious outages or environmental issues can occur.
