Why are there flags in my yard?
It is generally because there is excavation work being planned in the area and the person, company or utility planning the work has requested "locations" through Dig Safe. The flags mark the location of buried utility lines. Before the Sewer Department would do any major excavation work (backhoe type work) on your property you would be contacted unless an emergency situation occurs.
