Private Utility Locating

USIC specializes in locating, marking, and mapping utility lines that are not covered by the 811 Call Before You Dig Process; for both design and excavation projects. A private locate is necessary when utility lines (most likely services) are owned by a private owner. Our technicians utilized the latest technology to locate and identify private underground utilities within an excavation area.
