811 One-Call is a call everyone needs to make before starting any excavation project! It is a free service which will cover locating all underground utilities from the street to the service meter. Any utility beyond the service meter is usually considered to be a private utility, which will require a second call to a firm that locates private utilities. Here are some examples of private utilities not located by the State One-Call:
Gas line to a heated swimming pool
Electric to a detached garage/barn
Electric yard lights
Sanitary or storm sewers
Meter to house water lines
Parking lot lighting
Building to building utilities
Remember, some utilities can be even inches below the surface of the ground. So remember to go Beyond 811 and give us a call.
The standard locating rate is $250 for the first hour. and $150hr after.
If you are outside the Portland/Vancouver metro we charge a drive time of $75hr.
