If fiber in your area is run underground (typically following the same path as your electrical lines), Estes Park Power & Communications will complete locates prior to digging or trenching to lay the fiber.

Locates identify and label public utility lines that are underground. These lines may include cabling for telecommunication, electricity distribution, natural gas, cable television, fiber optics, traffic lights, street lights, storm drains, water mains, and wastewater pipes.

There is nothing you need to do, and there is no cost to you for this process. You may see different colors of flags or spray paint in your neighborhood as shown below.  To learn more about the process, you can go to colorado811.org/educational-resources.
