Prior to digging, drilling or excavating please
follow the following steps:
- Contact the Utility Notification Center
of Colorado at 811 or 800-922-1987
Colorado law requires underground utilities to
be located before anyone digs. This applies to a
home owner working around your own property or
any contractor that may be working on your site.
This call will initiate UNCC to contact Poudre
Valley REA and other Tier I members about your
plan to dig and inform you of any Tier II
members, which you must call yourself and notify
of you plans to dig.
When you call you will be asked a series of
questions to aid in defining your digging area.
This information will be used by the various
utility locate crews to make sure that they
locate their facilities in your dig area. You
will be given a ticket number to identify your
call. Please keep track of this number in case
you need to ask questions after the utility has
located its underground facilities.
- Utilities will Locate their Facilities in
Your Defined Dig within Two Working Days After
PVREA and other utilities must locate their
facilities by the end of the next two business
days following your call.
PVREA will locate all facilities that it owns
and maintaines on your property. PVREA ownership
of underground lines ends at the meter. If you
have underground lines beyond the meter they are
your responsibility to locate.
- Respect and Protect the Marks
PVREA will mark its underground facilities with
red marking paint or red flags. A locate sketch
will be left at your job site. These marks are
good for 30 days. If the marks are not longer
clear or if the project is delayed, please
request a re-located on your property.
It is your responsibility to keep track of these
marks and to not destroy them.
- Dig with Care
Hand dig 18 inches on both sides of the flags or
