Members of Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative are able to receive a special discount on private locating services. While utility-owned electric wires are located for free when calling 811—Gopher State One Call, member-owned private facilities such as underground electric wires and gas lines to outbuildings, electric fence, sprinkler systems, septic systems, and similar underground items are not marked. Arrangements must be made with a private utility locator to mark those.
To make it easier for TWEC members who might need private facilities located, Johnson Locating Service (JLS) has agreed to a reduced rate for private locates if they are called immediately after Gopher State One Call is notified. This allows JLS to do the private locate at the same time as they mark the utility’s lines. For more information, contact Jeff Johnson at JLS by calling (218) 821-7672 — payment is due at time of locate.
