    However, We had an operator of a bore machine try to argue the point that he didn't know that the large plastic thing was a Cable TV enclosure, he thought it was a "dog house". It didn't work though.

    Thats funny cause here we call the big peds (2'x2'x4' or whatever size they are) dog house peds.

    There places they don't mark electric or phone. Cause they don't have those contracts. Maybe they did exactly what they were suppose to do and you may not know who has what contract.

    And with my background of 14 years of locating I know what I am talking about and for anyone to try and say I may not know the difference is STUPID. Well since I can see that most here think I am wrong and USIC are experts I will no longer put out anything on this sits and stay clear of it. There may be a few good people here but it seems way too many love USIC.
    Good Day to you all and God bless.
    So you were wrong. The line ran from your house to your barn not from the ped to your barn and the electric ran from your house to the barn and not from the transformer to the barn and then metered. So it didn't get marked. It's ok to be wrong.

    Phone line runs from back of my home to a ped in front yard.
    Per runs from back of home to pole just outside my fence on the south side of my back yard.
    Catv runs along the per to the same pole. Nothing, untilled I had this new cable run to my barn, ran to my barn or thru my back yard.

    I would say the Bowling Green Group of USIC is some of the BEST locators out there, if your locate wasnt completed correctly, then something was wrong with the request. Bowling Green has the fewest damages/locate in all of Kentucky.
