What is Utility Locating?

Utility locating is a practice in which an individual or team of trained locating technicians utilize a variety of equipment and tools in order to pin point the location of underground utilities before excavation.

The most common method of locating utilities, is through the use of electromagnetic currents. Locating equipment that generates electromagnetic radio frequency allows the receiver to detect utilities that contain conductive materials. This is a reliable method for locating underground electric, cable, telephone, water, sewer and propane lines.

Once a utility is found, it is then marked with paint so excavators know a utility is buried in that exact location. This locating is then mapped and used for permitting.
