Palmetto Utility Protection Service | South Carolina Locate Request

SC811 - Palmetto Utility Protection Service, Inc.

810 Dutch Square Blvd, Suite 320, Columbia, South Carolina 29210


PALMETTO UTILITY PROTECTION SERVICE, INC. (P.U.P.S.) is a corporation formed and funded by participating utility companies and municipalities in the interest of community and job safety and improved service through damage reduction to the utilities.

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.
