GIS/Mapping - New!

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an essential tool for planning, implementing, and/or maintaining facility or print data for utilities and other entities with underground and above-ground facilities to protect. ARKUPS is now offering GIS services to its partners. Using industry standard GIS software and the latest GPS hardware; ARKUPS can provide a variety of GIS services to meet your locating and mapping needs.

We also provide a service to our partners call Strategic Watch and Excavator Assistance Program (SWEAP). Our utility partners have the option to have our Damage Prevention Specialists (DPS) work with the excavator to expose their facility. This service is utilized especially for high profile lines.

We get requests from various groups to provide surveys (identifying lines when there is no excavation being performed). Some utilities will agree to pay us to identify their lines for such requests. We will work with you to expedite the process.

Design Associates

Another such survey option is the Design Associate Membership. The Design Associate Membership is for Project Designers, Engineering and Survey firms. As a Design Associate Member with AOC and ARKUPS you can work directly with ARKUPS on survey requests that include ARKUPS utility partners. For Design Associate members, when ARKUPS receives a survey request, an ARKUPS field representative will go to the site, and then contact you with:

  • The proposed number of hours necessary to complete the markings
  • The utilities that will be marked
  • A time frame to complete the markings

If you approve, the cost of the survey will be invoiced to your company. The fee for being a Design Associate member is $200.00 per year to AOC and a $78.00 per hour rate for Design Associate Surveys approved and completed by ARKUPS.
