GSOC is a free service provided by Minnesota's underground utility operators.

  • GSOC can only locate services that utility companies have installed.
  • If you hire a professional contractor, they are responsible for contacting GSOC.
  • Mark the digging area with white stakes or white spray paint, otherwise the utility may mark your entire lot.
  • Private contractors or homeowners will have to locate other services such as sprinklers, power lines to a garage, gas grill line, or invisible fencing.
