Underground Locators, Vernon, BC
There is a mind-boggling number of organisms living and thriving in each cubic foot of soil on our planet. While you might not be concerned much with what is alive on your construction site in Vernon, British Columbia, before you start displacing the soil, you should be thinking about something manmade that wouldn’t do well if disturbed: underground utilities. At Okanagan Utility Locators, we are the ones to call before you start digging and excavating. As the premier underground locators in the area, we will thoroughly cover your entire worksite and locate such underground services as telephone, fiber optic cable, electrical power lines, and gas lines.
It is not enough to go off drawings provided by the utility companies, as they are not always accurate. It is also possible that they are out of date. Our state-of-the-art methods ensure that any detectable metallic conduit, pipe, and cable is found, marked, and entered into a comprehensive sketch of your property. You will be able to make all construction decisions with peace of mind that you know where you can dig safely and where caution or avoidance is necessary.
Utilizing underground locators is your best defense against a costly utility breach that could result in a heavy fine, repair costs, and even serious injury to an excavator operator or other crew member. Power lines and gas lines, in particular, are dangerous if you do not know where they are. Don’t run the risk to your company, your crew, and perhaps even the neighbourhood – call us today for a complimentary property evaluation and quote.
