Identifying Underground Utility Markers
Underground facility markers are used to designate the general route of pipelines and other underground facilities. Markers are also found where pipelines and utilities cross a street, railroad or waterway, as well as areas where they emerge from the ground.
Pipeline markers mark the approximate location of the pipelines in the right-of-way and display the product, the pipeline operator’s name and the 24 hour emergency phone number.
Be Aware. Underground facility markers DO NOT:
- Indicate an exact location.
- Designate a straight line between markers.
- Specify facility depth.
- Signal the number of pipelines or utilities in an area.
