is now nationwide.
They do not NORMALLY mark private lines, they only mark
member utilities. They are paid by the utilities, and in some areas
you may have 3 or more different locators come out, as some
utilities do their own.
I use this service in many different states, in many areas, and each
one is just a little different than the others.
You can call them and ask if they mark private lines in your area.
Don't take your organs to heaven,
