Residential Utility Markout in NJ, PA, NY

“Call before you dig.” It is a familiar warning, but many people do not understand how critical it is. Most utilities are located, at least in part, underground. If you hit one of those utility lines while you are digging, you can cause a service interruption in your electric, gas, water, septic, sewer, or communication lines. This interruption can not only cause inconvenience for you, but also for your neighbors, literally having the ability to impact service for your block or your neighborhood. This can be inconvenient, expensive, and, in some instances very dangerous as interrupted utility service can put some residents in danger and a broken gas or electric line can cause serious harm to those digging and to people nearby. Utility markout services are a required part of many major home improvement projects. Installing automatic sprinkler systems, building a swimming pool, or doing any type of foundation work all require knowing where existing utility lines are located. In addition, any new building on a piece of property will require utility markout. However, what many people fail to realize is that smaller projects may also have the potential of interfering with utility services. New gardens, landscape work, or deep planting all have the potential of breaking existing utility lines. Whether a project occurs on residential, commercial, industrial, or municipal locations, utility markout is an important first step to any project.
