Whether you’re planning to work on a garden project, install a new mailbox or build a deck, projects that involve digging in your yard can put underground pipes at risk. Before you dig, call Velasquez Underground Utility Locating to perform underground water and sewer pipe locating in New Mexico. Here are two consequences of failing to do so:
- Interruption of utility service: Many people have innocently and unthinkingly compromised their own and their neighborhood’s water and sewer service simply by failing to confirm whether those pipes happen to run beneath the ground in the area they’re planning to dig. Unintentionally striking one of these pipes can result in interrupted water or sewer service for an indefinite time. Better safe than sorry!
- Responsibility for repairs: Did you know that, in the event that you hit an underground utility pipe during the course of your digging, you’ll likely be liable for the cost of repairs? At the very least, your local authorities are likely to impose a fine. These consequences may not seem terribly dire, but they can be more costly than you’d expect—and particularly if your project was simple to begin with, you’ll find having to pay for repairs pretty frustrating!
