Why
Private Utility Locating is Necessary

The law requires you to call 811 to have public utilities marked before you dig. However, public utilities will only locate the facilities they own - electric, gas, oil, sewer, telephone, water. The vast majority of underground utilities are privately owned, which is why you need to make Blood Hound your second call.

We locate ALL underground utilities and structures and offer a range of highly specialized subsurface utility services to significantly reduce your risk of costly damages and project delays and mitigate safety hazards for your crews and community.

It's not just underground...it's under control.®
