Obviously these lines aren't as visible as their above-ground counterparts, so it's crucial that the task is completed by someone who really knows what he's doing.

    In order to serve everyone with proper utility functions like electricity and running water, many companies choose to put their cables underground. When construction needs to occur in any given space, a pipe and wire contractor can be called out to locate existing equipment so they aren't severed by accident and then need repairs. It is also important to know where they lay for system testing purposes. Cables themselves became a necessity with the invention of the telegraph power distribution system in 1882. While early forms were mostly made of copper, the wires involved have mostly been upgraded to fiber optics and other, more resilient fibers. Pipes were needed underground to help with water drainage issues (i.e. sewers and septic systems) at first, but have since been utilized for gas lines as well. Drain pipes are often accessible through manholes located throughout the city they are placed in. Underground utility cables and pipes are mostly found in cities where space constrictions make putting anything above ground not an option. Since most cities require regular maintenence and construction, it is necessary to locate existing lines and know open spaces for new line placement. Certain equipment can be bought to detect metal or frequencies in any site before the drill penetrates the earth. Once found, a trench can be excavated to pull or work around existing pieces. It's a safe bet to check with the local laws before boring holes in the ground. There are often city restrictions and a lot of red tape before work can begin. Failure to comply can cause costly fines.
