Different paint colors will be used to mark the various underground utilities found on your property. It is very important to have a good idea as to what these colors represent.
RED: Red markings identify electric systems including high voltage and low voltage
YELLOW: Yellow is used to designate the approximate location of pipe systems which carry natural gas, oil, steam and petroleum products.
ORANGE: Orange marks identify the approximate location of communication type cabling networks.
BLUE: Blue marks identify the approximate location of pipes carrying drinking water.
PURPLE: Purple is used to mark reclaimed water, irrigation and slurry lines. In many
GREEN: Green marks identify the approximate location of sewer and storm sewer pipes as well as other drain lines.
WHITE and PINK: White and pink are the only two colors in the APWA color code that do not designate the approximate location of underground lines on a job site. White is commonly used to indicate proposed excavation and pink to mark temporary survey markings.
