They call the gas (and other utility) companies to come out and mark ‘em. It’s free, and often, it’s the law.

Dottie in my state each has its own. Google “call before you dig” and find companies in your state. Its the law.

Here in NYS it’s our local utility and it is the law. Any local contractor or excavator can give you the down and dirty – literally.
