What happens when you need a job that requires BASEco to dig?
In Utah we have a service called Blue Stakes. Here at BASEco we work with Blue Stakes to make sure when we need to dig to install our solutions that your underground services are being protected. Two business days before your appointment date we request a Blue Stake ticket. If they see there are any utilities that need markings they will come out and mark them so our technicians can dig safely.
What do the markings mean?
RED – Electric Power Lines, Cables, Conduit and Lighting Cables
YELLOW – Gas, Oil, Steam, Petroleum or Gaseous Materials
ORANGE – Communication, Alarm or Signal Lines, Cables or Conduit
BLUE – Potable Water
PURPLE – Reclaimed Water, Irrigation and Slurry Lines
GREEN – Sewers and Drain Lines
WHITE – Proposed Excavation
PINK – Temporary Survey Markings
What about Private Utility Lines?
Utah law requires utility owners to mark only the lines that they own and maintain. This usually means up to the meter. Underground lines that extend beyond the meter or that are not connected to a meter are typically not installed or owned by a utility company and therefore may not be marked. These include water and sewer laterals, power to a detached garage or lamppost, sprinkler / irrigation systems, lines connected to a propane tank or septic system, etc.
Some of these solutions are digging by hand, or contacting a third party company that can mark private lines. To find a third party company click here.
BASEco will always do a manual dig by hand when necessary to avoid damage to any utility lines.

Results that Last
This front porch in Stansbury Park had dropped 2.25 inches. The weight of the porch was pulling it down into the soil. We used our Push Pier System combined with POLYcrete to lift and stabilize the porch back up to match with the rest of the home and prevent further sinking. This was a quick an easy fix that got results and will prevent an damage from being done to the structure, surrounding soil or foundation. We stand behind our Push Pier System with a 30 year warranty for results that last. To learn more about our Push Pier System to lift and stabilize a sinking structure click here.
