Secondary Excavator


Starting January 1, 2019 a secondary excavator may be added to the locate tickets for potholing or exposing utilities only. When a secondary excavator is listed by the primary excavator on a locate ticket the secondary excavators contact info will be listed in the fields called “Potholing Company”.

If the primary excavator on the ticket decides to add a secondary excavator for potholing, this information must be added when the ticket is originally created. A secondary excavator cannot be added to the ticket after the ticket is created. 

Recommended facility owner response: The response does not change, post a positive response before the locate-by-date using the Colorado 811 Positive Response system.

Please note: It is the primary excavator’s responsibility to communicate the positive response to the secondary excavator.
