Of course your who-to-blame mileage will vary from state to state.

I suggest that you turn the water off at the meter if you plan on tearing up water lines. That should help keep your de-dirting to a minimum.

If it's utilities that worry you, their locating is someone else's job. Let them do their work.

I still do my own locating to verify gas lines, and to mark the cable TV drops no one ever seems to care about (except the customers)
Biggest problem with cable we encounter is multiple lines and the locater always marking the wrong one.
