NOTICE AND ORANGE FLAG OR MARKINGS?
It could mean that a construction project is planned near the marked area. Markings like this mean that someone has called Missouri One Call Systems to have all nearby utilities located.
If you or someone you know is planning on digging for any reason, you are required to locate utilities first. The company that locates the utilities will come out and mark with paint all the utility locations in the vicinity so that whoever is digging will not dig up a utility line.
Missouri One-Call Systems (MOCS) has added a helpful feature to their Website – the ability to research utility-locating work by area. “Ticket Search” gives the general public the ability to obtain information about utility-locate work being done in their area, who’s digging in a specific area, and what they are doing. Users can search by ticket number, if they have one, or they can define the search using other criteria such as date, address, excavator name, etc. Click here to go directly to ticket search - OR - Click here to place a locate ticket request.
