    Default Great Article on Utility Locating

    How to see invisible infrastucture

    Old-timer locators are at times dismissive of the growing “bells and whistles,” insisting that the best locating equipment are your eyes and brain. Locators are experts in the minutiae of landscape. Variations in strains or color of grass and cracks in pavement can offer as much insight as a device equipped with Bluetooth or elaborate touch-screen interfaces.

    "Among the most prominent of these contractors is the marvelously pragmatically namedUnited States Infrastructure Corporation. USIC has technically only been in operation since 2008, after buying out dozens of smaller locator companies. They currently operate in 40 states and claim to "protect the assets of over 90 percent of the Fortune 500 Utility and Telecommunications Companies in North America." They also have amazing videos and, apparently, the best cones."

    LOL! I laughed for 5 straight minutes after reading that! The author is referring to a youtube video some USIC employee uploaded where he concluded his verbal sarcastic tirade against the company by stating "We even have the best cones!"

    ROFL! Can't believe he mentioned that!
