The City of Port Orange does not perform utility locates for water, sewer and reclaimed water lines on private property. You will have to locate these lines yourself. However, you need to contact the One-Call Service at 800-432-4770, for other utilities to be located, if you are performing excavation work deeper than 10 inches. The One-Call Service is responsible to contact all local utility companies to locate their utilities for you. They have 48 hours to do so, after being contacted by the One-Call System, and they will use paint and flagging to mark the ground where their utilities exist. If you plan to dig within two feet of these marks, be very cautious, using hand tools only, in order to avoid damaging the buried utility lines. Due to the 48-hour notice, you will need to plan ahead and call in advance of your work.

Minor or major dirt filling or excavating operations within 15 feet of the edge of a street also requires a City right-of-way permit. Right-of-way permits are also required for construction efforts, such as installation of an additional driveway. Mailbox post installations do not require a permit, if done carefully with hand tools. However, any type of masonry mailbox or planter structure installation will require City Council approval of a Right-of-Way License Agreement and subsequently a right-of-way use permit. Please contact the Public Utilities Department at 386-506-5754 or 386-506-5757 for assistance with this permitting application process.
