Public locate or Private locate? Which one do you need and when?
Before digging on any property, public and private, 811 One-Call must be called. No exceptions. Ever! When the utility companies provide this FREE service they will mark out all PUBLICLY owned utilities.
So who marks out any utilities that are privately owned? Utilities such as parking lot lights, any utility between your facility and the public main, or any other utility installed and maintained by anyone other than the service company needs to be located by a private locator.
Echo GPR Services provides private locates on any site. Prior to locating any existing drawings should be provided to our locators to help identify utilities that are in the area. From there we will begin to trace out any known utilities and begin to start identifying any unknown or abandoned utilities.
