What is the difference between a PUBLIC and a PRIVATE locate?
A “public” locate is a locate provided by a utility company for the services and utility lines they own and maintain, whether they are on public or private property. Utility lines are located to the “dissemination point” or “point of service” by the Utility Company, and each Utility Company may define exactly at what point their service ends and the private service owned and maintained by the property owner begins.
“Private” locates can begin at that point to detect and mark the location of services owned by the property owner. Typical dissemination points include the meter location, a service valve, a transformer, or even the property line. Private underground utilities may be present even when you think your clear! Please consider Bullz-Eye for your private utility locating in Hamilton and surrounding areas.
