Utility flag markers


Please note that it is ILLEGAL under Wisconsin state statutes to remove locate flags from a property. Yard markers are put in the ground so that crews can work safely and to not cause service disruptions by hitting underground utilities. Removing flags can be dangerous if underground utilities are damaged and can delay construction projects.

Color coding is as follows:

  1. Electric power: red. 
  2. Gas, oil, steam, petroleum or gaseous materials: yellow. 
  3. Communications, cable television or alarm or signal systems: orange. 
  4. Water, irrigation or slurry systems: blue. 
  5. Sewer or drain systems: green. 
  6. Temporary survey markings: pink. 
  7. Proposed excavation: white. 

If you have any questions, please call Village Hall at 414-351-8900.
