Why are colored flags and paint showing up in my yard?

Prior to construction the City or any contractor uses the Nebraska 811 system to have other buried utilities located in and around the construction area. This allows those digging to know where buried infrastructure is located. Nebraska 811 does not locate private lines such as underground sprinklers or buried fences for dogs or mowers. These lines will need to be located by the resident, prior to construction.
