These requirements are in place to help prevent damage to underground utilities. Careless digging ranks as the major cause of underground utility accidents.
To Locate Natural Gas Pipes, Electric Lines, and Other Underground Utilities Call 811:
To Locate Water, Sewer, Traffic, and City Fiber Optic Lines Call the City of University Park at 214-987-5496 or email Line Locates.
To Locate Buried Lines on Private Property Call a Plumber:
The 811 services and the City of University Park cannot mark buried lines on private property. A commercial line-locating firm or a licensed plumber should be able to mark all private utility lines. Generally speaking, any lines running from a water meter to the house are the homeowners' responsibility, and any sewer lines from the City main to the house are the homeowners' responsibility.
