Generally, existing utilities are located within the road right-of-way or within an easement across privately held land. With an easement, the resident still owns the property, but there’s a legal agreement between you and the easement holder – usually a public utility. (Check your property record at the County if you’re unsure.) If this is the case, work may happen without specific notification, but only in the easement.
