Kelly - 11/19/2023 22:06 I really struggle with trying to tell dig safe that I am working on a terrace in a certain area and need a locate. Gas company will mark the line location but will not tell you a depth. Could be a foot or 4 foot. They will tell you not to move soil off of an area.
Around the farm if I’m away from the yard our away from the edge of road I don’t call either.
As far as not telling you a depth I’m apprehensive to commit as well the locator we use isn’t accurate enough with depth for me to commit to a depth. I’ll share the depth reading but give a huge disclaimer. For us it’s typically 36-48 inches.
Here, it’s not the 36-48” deep lines that are the problem, it’s the 8-12” deep ones that are supposed to be 48”.
