How could someone find out if there are any underground cables telephone lines or gas lines that run beneath a certain area?
I believe most every place there is a service that will come out
and mark everything. In Kansas, it's call Dig Safe. Doesn't cost
anything, the utility companies pay them so their lines aren't cut.
Should be similar service where you are at.
They can usually be reached at 1-800-DIG-SAFE. If you are using
machinery to dig, it is against the law to start digging without
first having a Dig Safe clearance number. It may take a few days to
get clearance, so plan accordingly.
For your own information, you may rent or purchase devices that
will detect underground lines, usually electromagnetically or
ultrasonically. Answer: Contact Miss Utility at 811...THIS IS A
NATIONWIDE ONE CALL NUMBER. Miss utility markings are free.
