Why do I need private locates ?

Washington State law, RCW 19.122 States that any and every person doing any type of excavation must call before they dig! When you call for a public utility locate using 1-800-424-5555 or 811, the individual utility companies will locate and mark the utility up to the metering point in most cases, but not in all cases, this rule will vary from utility owner to owner with the rest being the responsibility of the homeowners, business owners, contractors, and excavators, they are to have the private utilities located at their own expense. Some examples of these private utilities are electric, gas, phone, water, sewer, storm, in most cases anything pass the meter point of the utility. Many industrial complexes have privately owned communication, power, water, gas, storm, irrigation, & sewer systems between main buildings and outlying buildings. By locating these utilities (when and where possible) you can avoid large repair bills and unproductive down time that can run up job costs. Even for the minor home improvement jobs (such as installing fences, signs, planting trees, etc.) require locates.
