We are a non-profit association funded by our member utilities. The Utilities Protection Center is a communication system established to provide one telephone number for excavating contractors and the general public to call for notification of their intent to use equipment for excavation, tunneling, grading, boring, blasting, demolition or any similar work. This one call system provides the participating members an opportunity to locate and identify their underground facilities.

The One-Call System does not mark utilities. The One-Call system only notifies participating member utilities. These participating member utilities will not mark private or non-member utilities. The utility locating companies notified will locate and mark only primary public utilities, so it's up to you to keep track of what else is on your own property.

Private Utilities are the buried lines after the meter or main lines. If you have a curbside meter then your property will not get marked by the participating member utility locators. Other buried utilities that generally are not marked include but may not be limited to: sewer lines, private lighting, sprinklers, fire mains, secondary electric lines to detached garages, and septic lines.
