Utility Locating Quality Process

Our team of experts and service technicians provide a full suite of state-of-the-art utility locating services, designed to help your team avoid accidental underground strikes that can result in costly repairs, severe injury and time.

Step 1 : Site Walk

Visual Site Scan

On The Mark Locators perform a visual job site inspection. We look for surface features and inspect the interior of the buildings to ensure that all underground utilities are accounted for in your scope of work.

Step 2: Find & Verify the Known Utilities

EM Receiver / Transmitter

We locate the known utilities in your scope of work. This is done by connecting, tracing and marking utilities from surface feature to surface feature ( Gas Valves, Water Pit or Meters, Electrical Transformers and Communication Junction Boxes). This may require us to connect to utilities out of the scope of work and trace back through the scope of work to ensure a safe place to work,

Step 3: Find & Identify Unknown Utilities

EM Passive & Induction Scans

To ensure the overall timely success of your project, utility detection is critical to any construction project where a subsurface excavation is planned. If this critical first step is ignored, the risk for injury increases, budget overruns can multiply and your schedule can be delayed.

Step 4: Find Anomalies Underground

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

We have the knowledge along with the equipment to find Storm Drains, Fiber Optics Lines and Sanitary Sewer Lines that are passing through your scope of work. Those types of utilities are not usually located with accuracy. On The Mark Locators have the equipment to find these utilities. All we need is access. 

Step 5: A Peace of Mind

A SECURE JOB SITE

On The Mark Locators documents all findings from each step and creates industry leading deliverables so you have full visibility and understanding of everything that was located on your job site.

Private Locating FAQ'S

Anyone who plans to dig should call 811 its the State Law and just one of the ways to protect yourself from harm and damages. 

The state one-call (811) only marks public utilities, those which are before the service meter. Any utility beyond the service meter is usually considered private, which will require a second call to On The Mark Locators.

New Technicians go through a comprehensive 16 week training program, but the learning does not stop there. New employees are then matched up with a veteran technician to continue additional field training, and when they begin to perform work on their own, all of their work is audited by management in order to make sure that only quality locates are provided to our clients. We perform audits on every technician to maintain the highest level of quality for our partners.

Clients are able to call our toll-free number (888-272-6065) that is routed to the on-call team.

GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) is a detection method used to identify the location of subsurface materials using radio waves to identify buried or hidden objects within a structure or beneath a surface. On most job sites, there are some unknown utilities that would never have been found by traditional locating methods. When you utilize GPR, you are increasing your chances that everything under the surface will get located.

We understand and professionalize the private locating industry by developing training, safety, and operational standards that are second to none in the industry. We understand that safety is the number one goal. 

We pride ourselves on being there for our partners. We have the most qualified technicians in the industry, and we can get to your job site with same day/next day service when needed.
