We're required to stake out or clearly mark where we are going to dig prior to them locating utilities. They do often tell us 10' but I think legally it's less. 3' sounds right but we try to accommodate what they tell us.
Each utility uses a specific color paint, gas = yellow, water = blue, etc. They don't mark "no electric" here, they just mark "OK".
A contractor I know was going to trench for a new water service for a commercial building. He had his own locating equipment and found all the utilities. He still called JULIE. The guy that located the phone lines located an abandoned line on the wrong side of the street. The contractor told him he was on the wrong side of the street. The phone guy was a jerk about it and wouldn't check on the other side of the street. The contractor dug his trench, hand dug around the 900 pair phone cable then called the phone company supervisor out to show him the exposed cable on one side of the street and the locate marks on the other and told him about his conversation with the guy doing the locating. The locate guy got in allot of trouble.

You're right Pops - they do mark "OK" in their color of paint. I just deleted a bunch of "proof pics" and noticed a big red OK in one. I've been retired a few years. . .
