MUWV does not do the locating; each MUWV member is responsible to mark their lines. Remember that not all utility owners belong to MUWV at present & are not notified by us to locate for you. You must notify non-members directly. Excavators must also be aware that some underground lines are owned by the property owner who is responsible for those lines and, therefore, is some cases, may not be located by the utility company.

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.
