What is a private line?

Do you have a detached garage, boathouse, pool, outbuildings, or outdoor light posts along a walkway or driveway on your property? If you have underground electricity or other utilities provided ​to these facilities, you may have a private line.

A private line is an underground utility that was installed by either the homeowner or a contractor working on behalf of the homeowner. These lines are typically not owned by a local utility company and are the responsibility of the homeowner.

If work is being done in or near your property, inform those doing the work of the potential for private underground facilities. This could avoid injury, damage, or service interruption to these lines.

We proudly offer line locating services to the people of the Greater Milwaukee area. Our ​outstanding service area includes two-thirds of the state of Wisconsin and we may travel outside the coverage area to other states upon request. Before you remodel, expand, or excavate, call us at:
