  • Water service lines (plastic or metal)
  • Secondary electric (site lighting, signage, 480 volt/220/110 conduits)
  • Communications (phone data, cable TV, fiber)
  • Gas lines (plastic or metal)
  • Sewer lines (include septic tanks, leach fields, field tile pipe, etc.)
  • Misc. utility lines such as oxygen, steam, chilled water lines, nitrogen and other chemical transport type utilities.

State Call

will locate public utilities which include -

  • Water Force Mains and some service lines (typically only on public property like streets and right-of-ways, easements, etc)
  • Primary Electric
  • Communications (phone, data, Cable TV, Fiber)
  • Gas and service lines (only if metallic pipe or tracer wire is used)
  • Main Storm and Sanitary Sewer (typically only on public property like streets and right-of-ways, easements, etc.)

GPRS's private utilities locating service should work in conjunction with your local 811 One Call system, as GPRS services do not replace the One Call system but the public system and GPRS services should supplement each other to provide a more thorough utility investigation. The One Call service will typically only locate public utilities up to a customer's meter or private connection point.

Private utilities, on the other hand, are the responsibility of the property owner. These privately- and customer-owned utilities account for almost 65% of all buried utilities in the United States. Besides the legal requirement, failure to locate these underground utilities before you excavate can result in serious injury or even death, as well as damage to the utilities and the property.

GPRS provides high quality customer service as well as accurate utility locating results. GPRS can locate telecommunications cables, private water service, sprinkler systems, propane tank lines, security lighting wires, ancillary electrical conduits, and more. Contact GPRS today for your utility locating needs.

Why a private utility locating service?

By law, you must locate utilities before beginning any sort of excavation project. Before doing any digging, everybody needs to call their respective 811 State One-Call. However, this free service only covers underground public utilities from the street to service meter and does not cover private utilities. For residential customers, private utilities may include gas lines for a heated pool, electric lines for a shed, garage, or barn, and certain sewers. For commercial customers, private utilities may include parking lot lighting, fire mains, and building-to-building utilities.

To ensure location of private utilities, customers need to contact a private utility locating company such as GPRS. To provide the most comprehensive data of existing sub-surface utilities on your job site, our ground-based utility detecting services should be used in conjunction with your state's one-call utility detection agency as well as any other utility data in your possession.

With the accurate utility locating that GPRS provides, you can avoid damage to existing services. Utility locating services such as GPRS will locate the underground utility lines, thereby preventing damage, disruptions, and potential fines and other costs. There are a number of problems that can occur when a person begins to dig, and these can include gas line explosions, fires or electrocution from power lines, and water lines bursts. Not only can these be costly, but they are also dangerous for property owners and workers. A private utility locating service such as GPRS can locate each utility.
