USIC is the nation’s leader in underground utility damage prevention, providing public utility locating (811) services across 48 states. We are also an emerging leader in advanced utility solutions. USIC affiliate companies, Blood Hound, Reconn Utility Services, and On Target Utility Services, offer a range of services for protecting, maintaining, and managing critical infrastructure and assets and assuring compliance with evolving regulatory requirements.
USIC locates and marks underground electric, gas, telecommunication, water, and sewer lines to prevent damage from excavation and mitigate risks to public safety. Our highly trained, qualified technicians are equipped with the most advanced technologies for providing the most accurate locates.
The majority of underground utilities are privately owned and will not be marked by calling 811. Blood Hound locates these private utilities, which include septic systems, process sewers, abandoned lines, irrigation lines, alarm wires, and facilities that cannot be located using typical detection methods to prevent costly damages, project delays, and safety risks.
