Damage prevention is a shared responsibility. We all must do our part to keep everyone safe and underground lines in service. If you’re a locator, it’s important to educate yourself on locating best practices and to master your equipment before going out in the eld. As an excavator, it’s important to always contact GSOC 48 hours in advance, excluding weekends and holidays, to have a locator come out to mark your utility lines before you dig!
