Excavation can be a risky job. Anything that helps keep people and property safe is a huge advantage. When done properly, line locating is a technique that decreases risk.
Line locating is the process of locating any lines that are underground. While this may sound easy, it has become increasingly complicated and risky. As more construction is done, it can be difficult to know just how many lines are below the surface. Not everyone keeps proper track of what they installed in the past, so there is often not enough information available. When a crew begins construction, they might accidentally strike a line, uncover the wrong line, or dig in a completely empty spot. All that trial and error just to get started means time and labor wasted.
Fortunately, at MJ Minor we make line locating easy!
