Understanding Private Utility Locating: Services, Benefits, and Costs

When embarking on a construction or renovation project, understanding what’s beneath the ground is crucial. For private properties, this is where private utility locating services come into play. At 2M General Engineering, we offer specialized private line locator services to ensure safety, accuracy, and efficiency in your projects.

The Difference Between Private and Public Locating

Public locating, often referred to as 811, is a free service that identifies and marks publicly owned utilities such as gas, electric, water, and sewer lines. When you call 811 before digging, utility companies come out to mark their lines, helping to prevent damage and ensure safety. However, 811 does not cover privately owned utilities. This is where private locating services are essential.

The Role of Private Locating Services

Private locating involves identifying and mapping underground utilities that are not covered by public utility services. This can include private water lines, electrical lines, gas pipes, and communication cables. Utilizing our private locating services ensures that you have a comprehensive understanding of all underground utilities, preventing accidental damage and ensuring smooth project execution.
