One-Call and private utilities

In Louisiana you should always call before you dig!

Louisiana One Call System, Inc.

2215 West Boardwalk Drive, Baton Rouge, LA 70816


LA One Call is a free service. State law requires that anyone planning to excavate or demolish call us at least 48 hours prior to digging. We will alert any of our members who operate nearby underground facilities. They will mark their underground cables, pipelines, and similar systems so that you can avoid them.

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.
