Marking of Utilities

Posted by at 12:35 PM

Before any fence installation can begin all of the utilities need to be marked at the installation site.  Diggers hotline provides a free service and will contact all of the utilities that service your area to mark and flag the site.  Contacting Diggers hotline is something that we take are of at Countryside Fence.   The big concern comes when there are privately buried lines.  This would be a power line from the house to a garage, or a light pole.  WPS will NOT mark or find these lines.  This is something the homeowner is responsible to mark.  

The good news is there are services that will locate private lines for a fee.
