Nowadays digging in your yard is no longer what it used to be. While in the past you might have had the green light to dig a hole in your backyard whenever you pleased, today you have to be careful of the utility lines that might be running under your property. These can easily be damaged even by a common shovel, and then you’ll have to deal with the trouble of having the utility company to come over and fix the problem – not to mention delaying your project.

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to solve this. You can call before you dig in Utah for assistance to mark underground facilities. As soon as they receive your call, they’ll send someone over to have a look at your property, and they will also check your building plans to see where the utility lines are likely to be.

In most cases, you’ll have to be careful of power lines, phone and internet cables, water pipes and gas pipes that might be running under your house or garden. In some cases, they’ll be quite close to the surface, so you may have to take care even when digging trenches and holes for planting your trees or shrubs.

A reliable local utility operator will quickly help you solve your problem, so you can get underway with your digging project and even save some valuable time prior to its completion.
