Understand Locator Marks
Utility locator markings protect you.
Make sure you and your crew know how to read utility locator markings and know
the American Public Works Association (APWA) uniform color code for marking
underground utilities. Color code charts are usually available from your local
one-call utility locator service.
Locator flags are placed within paint marks.
If you find flags outside the borders of locator markings, someone may have
tampered with them. Contact your local one-call utility locator service.
Utility locator markings protect you from injury and prevent damage to
underground utilities. Make sure you and your crew know how to read them.
