Call the City of Grand Prairie at 972-237-8400 or email UtilityLocates@gptx.org
The City requires three full business days to mark the area you have requested (exceptions: emergency locates).
When requesting locates, you will be asked to provide your name, number, company name, type of work you are doing and location of the project you are working on. Specify if the project is outlined in white markers and whether you need locates marked in the front of the property, in the street, behind the curb, on the side or in the rear of the property.
After requesting locates, you will soon see some colored marks or flags at your jobsite letting you know where underground lines are so you can safely dig. If any lines are clear of that area, “clear” will be written on the ground.
You must call back in two weeks time if you are still working on your project to request updated locates before locates expire.
This service is free. The city does not charge for locating city water, sewer and traffic fiber optic lines.
