Property owners may contact a private locator to locate utilities buried on private property and not otherwise marked by the utility company.

Utility companies generally do not mark underground utilities located outside of the utility company’s right of way. Thus, a property owner may contact a private locator to locate and mark underground utilities in these otherwise unmarked areas.

The following is a list of some private locator companies in South Carolina. This list is provided solely to assist property owners in contacting private locators.

By using this site, property owners recognize that SC811 does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any products, goods, or services provided by the private locators listed below.

Please contact these companies directly for pricing information.
