Why

You need private locating from Blood Hound

The law requires you to call 811 and have your public utilities marked before you dig. But did you know that doesn't give you complete protection? Public utility companies will only locate the facilities they own (think: utilities that run meter to main, like electric, gas, oil, sewer, telephone, and water).

We locate and mark any and all underground utilities and structures.

811

Locates the Public utilities. These are utilities that are owned by the utility companies. 811 will locate these utilities from the main to the box.

CCTV

Closed Circuit Television lines. If these are cut you will not have a security system until it is fixed.

Diesel Tank

Any underground tank is considered a private utility

Irrigation

All irrigation and sprinkler systems are private underground lines that need to get marked.

Lot Lights

These lines power the lights in the parking lots. This is a common one that people think will be marked by 811.

Sewer

Sewer from the main to the building is private.

Fire / Water

Extremely important to be marked. This is another one that people think will be marked by 811 and is not.
