IS THERE A LITTLE ORANGE FLAG IN YOUR YARD? OR MAYBE SOME ORANGE PAINT MARKINGS?
If there are flags or markings in or on your yard or near your yard, it means somebody – a neighbor or someone planning to do construction work near your yard – has called Missouri One Call Systems to have all nearby utilities located. When someone is going to dig up the ground for any reason, they are required to locate utilities first. The company that locates the utilities will come out and mark with paint all the utility locations in the vicinity so that whoever is digging will not dig up a utility line. Now you can find out what’s going on simply and easily.
Missouri One-Call Systems (MOCS) has added a helpful feature to their Website – the ability to research utility-locating work by area. “Ticket Search” gives the general public the ability to obtain information about utility-locate work being done in their area, who’s digging in a specific area, and what they are doing. Users can search by ticket number, if they have one, or they can define the search using other criteria such as date, address, excavator name, etc.
Enter your street, county and the date on to the Missouri One Call website to learn why the markings are in your yard and who put them there.
