Call 811 or REQUEST A LOCATE OF UNDERGROUND UTILITIES
All utilities mark their facilities in accordance with the American Public Works Association Uniform Color codes listed below:
- Hand digging is required within 2 feet of either side of the underground facility markings, according to Idaho Code. Depth of the underground facility is not guaranteed.
- Using white paint to mark the area of excavation prior to your underground facility locate will help locators correctly mark the area of excavation as well as save time.
- Directions you give for locating an underground facility should be stated using north, south, east, and west directionals if possible. Landmarks are also helpful.
- After a locate has been performed in an area, it is the responsibility of the party requesting the locate to reference or maintain the locate marks during the construction period.
