Dig Safe

Dangerous environmental conditions and extensive property damage can be avoided if underground utility lines are located before you dig.

Requests for utility locates are not required if:

  • You will not be using heavy or powered excavation equipment.
  • Locates are outside the right-of-way area, which is between your water meter pit and the street.


Please Note: Utilities, including service lines and lawn irrigation systems, that are between the water meter pit and the house are your responsibility and are not located and marked by the City of Olathe.

Resources for making requests for markings of your underground utility lines are provided below.
