Utility locating is the process of identifying and labeling public utility mains which are most commonly underground. These include lines for telephones, electricity, natural gas, cable TV, fiber optics, traffic and street lights, storm drains, water mains, and wastewater pipes. It is essential that these utilities are located before any digging or construction work is performed in the vicinity, as not knowing that these lines are around can be costly and dangerous.
At Star-4-Locate, we can ensure that you or your company are provided with an extensive map of the utility lines in your work or construction area. This will enable you to dig away and perform your work as you require, without having to worry about the disruption of any of these lines and the potential fines or injuries that could result, as well as the inconvenience and time delays to your project. It really isn’t worth taking the risk; you never know what could be underground right where you need to dig, so our utility locating services are a fantastic investment.
As there are so many different types of materials that go into manufacturing each of the different types of underground lines, different detection and location methods must be used. It can be very difficult to comprehensively check for all metal, plastic, concrete, and other materials with limited or no experience in utility locating, and this really is a job for the experts. Star-4-Locate has been providing utility locating services throughout metropolitan Atlanta for a number of years, and our technicians are highly skilled and experienced in the complex process of utility location.
