Private Utility Locators

Louisiana law requires utility owners to mark only the lines that they own and maintain. Buried lines usually are marked only up to your meter or to the beginning of your service line. Or, in some jurisdictions, only to the nearest electrical transformer.

Almost every homeowner has some type of privately-owned underground utility. What are private utilities? They typically are underground lines that extend beyond the meter or lines not connected to a meter that serve other areas on a property.

Examples of Residential Private Utilities:

  • Electricity to sheds, garages, barns or electric fences
  • Invisible dog fences, data cables, landscape lighting
  • Water, septic or irrigation systems
  • Propane or natural gas run to grills and pool heaters

A property owner may contact a private utility locator to locate and mark underground utilities in these otherwise unmarked areas.
