Engineering Locate Policy

 Engineering Locate Policy

An engineering request is intended for persons designing excavation who require general information as to the description and location of existing underground facilities in the area of proposed excavation. They are never to be used for excavating activities.
 
Locate requests for excavation purposes take precedence over engineering requests. 
 
Upon receipt of an engineering locate request, Colorado Springs Utilities locators will provide general information to the requestor by:
  • Marking and sketching all utility mains in the designated area within two weeks of request date, unless otherwise arranged by the requestor.
  • Request a FIMS map.
