Utility mains are generally color coded.
Water mains are normally blue, sewer mains green and gas mains yellow.
Existing utility mains must be located by the utility company before digging by machinery can begin.
Sometimes the location of the existing utilities is unknown, even using modern locating techniques such as ground penetrating radar (GPR).
Every reasonable effort is made to avoid line breaks, as utility interruptions are inconvenient to you the customer and expensive to repair.
Currently the road drains into grass swales that can hold water for a significant period of time before it drains.
When this project is complete, rain water will drain through pipes under the road to the retention ponds.
