Public and private utility lines.

Public Utility Lines

You may notice flags and/or paint markings indicating the proposed path of the new cable and the location of the existing utilities on your property.

Private Utility Lines

Please be advised that private lines like sprinkler systems or invisible fences are unable to be marked. If you have any private underground lines, you will need to mark those lines to avoid any damage to those facilities.
