Water Line Replacement Brings Utility Markings To Washington Residents Yards

If you live in Washington, you may have noticed some flag and paint markings on lots of properties around town.

As the City of Washington begins working on the upcoming water line replacement project, the contractor, BG Consultants, must perform preliminary survey work on city utilities, right-of-ways and easements.

Part of that work includes identifying all utilities located in those right-of-ways and easements. In order to do that, BG Consultants has placed numerous utility locate requests with Dig-Safe so that all utility companies are notified and have marked or will be marking utilities.

Please do not remove, alter or destroy these markings for at least 15 days after they have been placed. If you have questions, please contact the Washington City Hall at (785) 325-2284.
