Call 811 Before You Dig

Water Line Locates

The District locates its water lines free of charge to contractors, engineers and homeowners alike. If you are planning to dig, build a fence, plant some trees, etc., call the Utility Notification Center of Colorado at 811 to request District water line locates. We will locate water lines only up to the meter pit; service, sprinkler, and other lines beyond the meter pit are private property and the District does not have the ability to provide locates beyond the meter pit.

You may come home from work and find paint marks and little flags of several colors in the street and in your yard. It is a law in Colorado that any person who digs or excavates must request utility locates of the area, and the District and other utilities are required to locate and mark their utility lines if requested. Please do not remove the flags or locate sheets from the area, as the person who is digging needs to know where the various utilities are located so they do not break them.
