Types of Underground Lines

There are numerous types of utility lines that get buried underground. So many that it makes it hard to be sure what’s even buried on your own property. That is why it can be so dangerous to begin digging without contacting a professional to locate lines. Below is a list of a few of the most common line types that exist both on residential and commercial properties.

  • Telecom Lines
  • Electrical Lines
  • Cable TV
  • Natural Gas
  • Traffic Lights & Electric Street Signs
  • Fiber Optics
  • Street Lights
  • Water Mains
  • Sewage Lines

One thing that is clear from the list above, some lines can be much more dangerous than others. Jamming a shovel into an electrical line will make for a very bad time and could be potentiall fatal, while hitting a water main can cause severe property flooding. In any event we always recommend you play it safe: call Metroplex Leak and Line Locators before you dig.

Check Before You Dig

underground cables

Fiber optic and electrical cables are among many underground utilities.

One of the most common issues that we see is property owners assuming or trying to recall from memory just where certain lines are located. Some things to keep in mind before you dig:

  • Most utilities are not buried very deep. In fact, most are laid just a few inches underground. Put another way, it is definitely possible that you strike a line while laying a new lawn or installing a garden.
  • Previously done line markings are not reliable. Lines get pushed away from their original location all the time. Whether it be due to erosion, root growth or intrusions, or small ground shifts. If you have old uility line markings on your property, it is a smart idea to have them reassessed before beginning that digging project.
