USI locates what 811 doesn’t. 811 will only locate public utilities outside of your property. Call USI before you dig anywhere on your property - we can locate all utility lines on your property - 811 does not. By locating your “private side” utilities ahead of time, you can prevent potential costly damage to your property, ﬁling insurance claims and increases to your insurance premiums. Planning ahead can save you real time and money.
It’s important to use hand digging tools instead of heavy digging equipment when working within 24 inches of the outside edge of any private side underground lines that USI Locate has marked. Dig slowly and carefully to avoid accidental damage to underground lines.
