Protect Customers and Your Infrastructure

Preventing damage to underground utilities is critical to maintaining the integrity of essential infrastructure, as well as ensuring public safety. It just takes one misplaced shovel to create a dangerous situation. Clients partner with us to prevent accidental damage to underground utilities. We provide a proactive approach to mitigate service disruptions, safety hazards, and costly repairs.

Call before you dig programs are paramount to ensure safety around underground utilities. Our trained professionals are equipped to locate and mark underground utilities accurately so that when a call comes in, we can ensure all the right measures are in place and damage is prevented. When damage does occur, our teams are deployed quickly, with safety and resolution in mind. We work to mitigate harm and costly mistakes while working with the right people to fix any situation.

How Our Damage Prevention Services Work

Whether it’s for electric, gas, water, fiber optic, telephone, or any other type of underground line, our team is here to support utility customers’ line location needs. Whenever a homeowner or contractor calls 811, the national call before you dig number, or submits a local request, a ticket is dispatched to the utility. From there, it is assigned to our team.

We’ll immediately dispatch a field worker to the customer’s location. We assess the situation to ensure safety. Using GIS mapping software, we’ll identify where underground lines are located. Then, we’ll use ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to mark the location of the lines on the customer’s property and notify you when the work is complete.
