Effective October 1, 2015 the work type of “Survey” will be removed from our locate request system. For those that need lines located for planning projects, instead of “Survey” as your work type, you will need to specify the type of excavation that is being planned. For example, if you are requesting lines be located so you can decide where to install sewer lines, then you will specify "sewer" as your work type. If you’re unsure about the work type, then specify "Other”.
By no longer having a “work type” called “Survey”, the utility locate sub-contractor will not be able to place those requests on a lower priority as they have been doing in the past.
The type of request will now solely be based on the type of work you are doing or planning. Some of the work types that you will likely now be using are (only a partial list)
