Are you thinking of digging for Gas Grill Lines? Invisible Dog Fence? Sprinkler System? LP Gas Line? Burying Cable Lines? Building A Deck?
BEFORE YOU DIG- Call Iowa One Call!!
Iowa residents are required by law to call IOWA ONE CALL before any digging. IOWA ONE CALL is a statewide notification center that coordinates the location of buried, utility owned, facilities. They do not arrange to locate private facilities. Any facilities beyond the meter are privately owned. Taking this extra step could save your life, or the life of someone you have hired to perform work for you and will also eliminate interruption of services for both you and your neighbors.
Maquoketa Valley Electric Cooperative has arranged for our contractor, Consolidated Utilities, to offer a reduced fee if you contact them and arrange for them to locate your private facilities while they are on-site locating ours. They will provide this service at a reduced rate of $25.00. If you contact them without first contacting Iowa One Call, or after they have visited the site to locate MVEC's facilities, the normal $90.00 fee will apply. You can expect them to request you to sign a locate agreement for your facilities.
