Call Before You Dig!
Underground utility locates are an important safeguard to protect your critical underground distribution system. In the State of Alaska, if an excavator damages an unmarked utility asset, he has no obligation to repair it. To ensure the underground assets of the utilities we serve are protected, Northern Utility Services service areas are registered with the Alaska Dig Line, and all locations are marked where excavations have potential to damage utility assets.
Private Utility Locates
Water and sewer lines on private property as well as electric and gas utility extensions beyond the meter are owned by the property owner. As such, responsibility for any damage lies with the property owner. To ensure construction activity on private property does not damage underground utilities, Northern Utility Services provides private utility locates on an hourly basis. Requests for private utility locates can be made by the request a quote page.
