123Locating has been providing nationwide Private Locating services throughout the contiguous United States for Enterprise, Commercial, Government and Residential customers  for years.  No matter the situation, if you have unidentified underground utility facilities, we can have an experienced locating professional on site right away.  We will make sure that all  locates for public utilities have been called and  that they remain current at the time of construction.

A call to your local 811 “one call” system will typically only ensure that utilities are marked with maps, flags, and paint; up to the customer’s meter or the structure.  However, beyond this, any cable, wiring, or conduits are considered “private utilities” and the responsibility of the property owner.   For customers who are working in highly congested areas or where there is no question that there are underground utilities and/or assets, but rather they need to find a clear and safe path for directional boring or trenching.   In situations like that 123Locating can facilitate the scheduling of Radar Locating technologies.

What Exactly is Private Locating Services

It is estimated that nearly 65% of all buried utilities in the United States are private  and customer owned facilities, which require a private locating specialist’s help in identifying.   Private Locating is concerned with the identification of underground assets that are privately owned by a property owner, and do not fall under the auspices of utilities services such as electric, phone, water, CATV or natural gas, otherwise know as public utilities.

Regardless of the scope of your project if you are planning any kind of underground excavation or construction, you are legally required to locate all underground assets.  Failure to not do so could not only result in serious injury or death, but it can also result in costly damage, loss legal action and financial liability.
