If an excavator cuts or ruptures a live utility, it could result
in costly damages and project delays and injuries or deaths.
The same is true for parking lots, which are often ideal
locations to run pipes and cables beneath due to their accessibility and lack
of obstructions for excavating trenches to lay utilities.
The current physical appearance of any redevelopment site
may obscure what was previously located there. A subdivision site may once have
been home to a manufacturing facility and conceal many potential hazards. When
sites are redeveloped, underground utilities may be adapted and rerouted to
meet current needs and, therefore, not be located where you would expect to
You may have notified 811 to locate public utilities on the
site, as required by law, but it is equally important to have private utilities
located, which is the reason why Blood Hound should always be your second call
prior to excavation. We locate all underground private utilities and structures,
including what other companies cannot or will not locate, to protect you from
unexpected, potentially hazardous and costly damages.
