Columbus Water Works would like to remind our customers to make sure to have utility lines located before beginning any mechanized digging on your property.  Many utilities have their lines located underground.  If underground utility lines are not properly located before digging, you may be in store for an unpleasant surprise.   If utility lines are hit, you may cause harm to yourself, damage to the property and/ or impact the utility’s ability to provide services.  When a utility line is damaged and the lines were not marked, in accordance to state law, the person who damaged the line is responsible for repair costs.

At Columbus Water Works, we locate our lines in 2 colors: blue and green.  The blue lines indicate a water line and the green a sewer line.  Other utilities use different colors.

Please remember to call before you dig! Just dial 811 or 1-800-282-4711 at least 48 hours before beginning your project to request a utility locate.
