Drilling Where You Shouldn’t Be Drilling
We have a saying that goes something like…. they were drillin’ where they shouldn’t be drillin’. We use that saying around our shop when we hear stories of drillers drilling without locates, or when we hear of some of the unfortunate incidents of utility strikes. We have been made aware of an incident where this saying has never been more applicable.
It will take about 5 minutes for you to watch the YouTube video, but it is absolutely the best example we have ever encountered where someone was “drilling where they shouldn’t be”. There is also more information on the Wikipedia by clicking here. We don’t think anyone would ever expect us to drill again in an area where the locates are not 100% complete, if they had watched this video.
