Residential Private Line Locating
In our ongoing effort to prevent damage to underground facilities, Residential Private Locating Services are now available. If you need the lines beyond the meter located, we can work with you to get those identified and marked so you can continue your planning or excavation. Currently available in Pulaski, Saline, and Faulkner counties with expansion to the rest of the state planned in the near future.
Utility companies consider all underground facilities beyond the meter to be private, and therefore the responsibility of the owner or homeowner to maintain and protect against damage. We can now locate and mark all private lines using either direct connection, or Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR).
Please review our procedures, pricing, and limitation of liability before proceeding with your residential private locate request.
Procedures: The following information will be needed to place a request: Name, address, contact number and the Arkansas 811 locate reference number for either excavation or survey. An ARKUPS field representative will be in contact to establish a mutually agreed date and time to meet on site to complete the RPL. The work order must be signed and a personal check provided at the time the services are completed.
Pricing: A service charge of $94.00 will apply for each site visit in addition to the “total time-on-site” rate of $94.00 per hour, calculated to the half-hour increment. Normally, only one site visit is needed. An additional site visit may be requested to re-mark the area due to work and weather destroying the original markings. All RPL services including locating, GPR, GPS and mapping are at the same rate of $94.00 per hour.
