Blue Stakes of Utah has provided a way for homeowners or contractors to submit a do-it-yourself application online to submit locate requests (tickets) and revisions. All you need to provide is an email address and general information pertaining to your excavation project or previous locate request. Blue Stakes will notify you by email confirmation once they have received and processed your request. The underground utility operators will be notified of your pending excavation and are allowed by law 48 hours (2 business days) to locate and mark their facilities before you may begin your excavation project. Some functionality may be limited on certain requests, like Meet and Emergency tickets. The form is designed for single address requests only and should not be used for multiple addresses or intersections. To submit an online locate request, click here.
What is the cost to have an area marked?
Member utility companies will mark their lines at no cost. If you need the lines remarked as you continue excavating, they will be marked again at no charge. However, if you request the same area to be marked multiple times and do not excavate, the utility companies may bill you for their costs to mark the area.
What should I do if I damage a line?
Utah Law specifies that if a utility line is damaged during excavation, the excavator should immediately inform the appropriate utility owner so the line can be repaired and immediately call 911 if the damage may result in an immediate risk to human life. Refer to your local phone book or the online Utility Contact Information Lookup page to contact a utility owner directly.
If the line was marked, refer to the APWA standard markings (see FAQ #3) to determine what kind of line it was. If the line was not marked, please do not call Blue Stakes to determine what kind of line it is. Their phone operators are not trained to identify them. If you do have the locate request assignment number (LRA), Blue Stakes can tell you which utilities were notified, but that does not necessarily mean the line belongs to one of them.
