Excavation Area Flags

Do you ever wonder what those little flags around proposed excavation sites mean?  You can tell what is buried below by the color of the flags.  Here are the flag colors and what they mean:
  • Red - Electric
  • Orange - Telephone, communications, TV
  • Blue - Potable water
  • Green - Sewer/drainage
  • Yellow - Gas/oil/petroleum pipeline
  • Purple - Reclaimed water
  • White - Site of intended excavation (black when snow is present)
