Utility Markout is an absolute must before excavating anywhere. Damaged utilities are expensive to repair and can cause liability problems in the neighborhood of the work site.
Dig Alert is fine but will only let you know where public utilities are. There are many things that might cause a problem if dug up, not just what the utilities have put in.
Using GPR to survey an area before digging ensures that no damage is done to any underground lines including gas and water lines, power lines, waste, communications, cable TV, sprinkler manifolds or systems, lighting systems and other buried items commonly uncovered during remodeling or repair of existing structures.
