Can I move the flags in my yard?

Please do not remove the flags. MetroNet is legally required to have utilities locate their underground transmission line, such as gas, water, and electric lines prior to construction. The flags show where the existing utilities are, helping MetroNet crews avoid these areas. Once these colorful flags or temporary landscape-safe spray paint appear in your yard, or along the street, construction should begin within a week. Once construction is complete, the flags will be removed. Weather permitting, MetroNet will rake, seed, and straw your lawn in the areas where digging occurred.
