When I arrived home from work today I noticed that bright green paint had been sprayed on the street and curb. What is this for?
When we receive a request to do a facility location, we are required by law to mark those locations with the designated color, normally within three working days of a planned excavation. This could be for either an installation or a repair for the utility or contractor that made the request. The location of the paint indicates where we have sewer mains or laterals. There are different colors for each type of utility. If you see paint markings, be aware that there will be some excavating work done soon. If you are going to be caused any inconvenience, you should talk with the project foreman when they come on site, to make any arrangements necessary.
