X-ray Locating Service is a private underground utility locating company offering a wide range of services including Line Locating, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Video Pipe Inspection, Tank Locating, Buried Manhole Cover and Valve Investigation, Vacuum Excavation, and Digital Mapping. Our work is performed on both public and private property. Our marks are precise and clear. We use a combination of paint and flags (and chalk or tape if necessary) to show our findings. Many people do not realize the importance of a mark-out, unfortunately until it is too late and a utility or property is damaged or worse yet, personal injury or death. The more you educate yourself on dig safety, the more you will understand how important it is to have a proper underground utility mark-out performed prior to any dig project.
Although the "Call Before You Dig" hotline or 1-Call Center is a good start, it should not be the only step taken to protect your utilities. Most of the time excavation is performed within the property line which is outside the jurisdiction of the public mark-out. What you don't know can hurt you, so for a thorough, accurate sub-surface utility survey call or email us now. Donít break ground without one! You can also fill out our mark-out request form which is fast and convenient.
