Florida law requires utility owners to mark only the lines that they own and maintain. But, almost every job site includes some type of privately-owned underground utility. These utilities are not listed in our database so you'll need to use a private utility locating service. Note: We will be adding a list of private utility locators in the near future.
Private underground utilities can be located anywhere including private property and rights-of-way. They typically are underground lines that extend beyond the meter or lines not connected to a meter that serve other areas on a property.

Before you dig, inspect the property carefully for private underground lines. Consider hiring a private locator to mark private lines that could be in conflict with the excavation project.
