Line and Utility Locates

Subsurface or buried hydro/electric lines, communication lines (copper, coax and fiber optic), water lines, steel pipes and steel conduits that need to be located.

Hills Geolocates specializes in private utility locating, using state-of-the-art equipment for all pre-excavation and site planning needs. Ontario’s One-Call, only marks public utilities, which are typically before the service meter. Any utility beyond the demarcation point such as Gas/Hydro service meter, Telecom NIDs etc. is usually considered privately owned and not covered under the one call system.

That’s where our work begins: after the demarcation point. Private utilities are owned by government, commercial and residential owners. Here are some examples:
