Quincy headed out to Chesapeake to meet our friends from Virginia 811 to learn more about why it is so important to contact them before you do any digging!
He was greeted by Jordan Rogers, who is a Locator for the City of Chesapeake. He shows Q the ropes on how to first go about marking the utility lines, and then they go back and lay down the corresponding flags!
Q learned that placing the flags isn’t as easy as it may look! He even got the chance to wear the fancy vest and hat like his new friend Jordan from the City of Chesapeake.
Jordan explains that when you’re in an area that has a ton of different lines (which he calls “congested”), you have to be careful to mark the correct lines!
Quincy learns that there is a lot more to it than it may seem at first. Attention to detail is key for locators!
That’s why it is so important that you call the professionals instead of trying to DIY.
Make sure you contact Virginia 811 before you dig so that you can have your underground public utility lines located!
