Utility companies are required to send professional locators to residences to mark underground utility lines. These lines are marked with colored flags to prevent them from being damaged during excavation.
To ensure the safety of everyone involved, please do not remove, or disturb the flags or any other markings. If the flags or markings are moved or compromised in any way, please call 811 to request the utilities to be marked again.
The color of the flag denotes what type of utility line it is marking. Please refer to the graphic on this page for a flag color code.
