Locates are accurate to +/- one (1) meter horizontally, but in specific cases, may be much more accurate.
 
No mechanical excavation work should take place within one (1) meter of marked utility lines. At Locate It Inc. we prefer to use paint markings as opposed to flags as they are not subject to being moved inadvertently. No mechanical excavation is to take place within one (1) meter horizontally of any marked utility line, regardless of its identity. Please use extreme caution in this regard.
