Originally plumbers, the owner of The Underground Detective and his head technician often struggled to find the proper place to excavate when a sewer problem occurred.  In 1975, they purchased a piece of equipment to locate underground utilities on their own. Other plumbers in the area began to use their new service, but it wasn’t until 1992 that The Underground Detective of Greater Cincinnati, LLC officially became a company. Since then, the company has grown and expanded to specialize in the location of many underground utilities.

Our Mission

We strive to provide contractors, excavators, surveyors, engineer site planners, and/or homeowners with the best possible knowledge of all underground utilities. This will help avoid any potential hazards and/or assist in proper site utility planning or excavation. Our goal is to help people save time, money, and valuable resources, while providing state-of-the-art utility locating, utility mapping, vacuum excavation, pipe inspections, and leak locating solutions. Our service and accuracy are unparalleled.
