UNDERGROUND UTILTIES / PRIVATE LINES

North Carolina State law requires anyone planning to disturb the soil, must provide advance notice to the underground facility owners. The notice must be at least two business days prior to any excavation but no more than ten business days.

Fence installation always requires a call to 811 or the NC One-Call Center 1-800-632-4949. Installing a fence requires digging multiple holes in areas likely to contain underground utility lines such as along streets, right-of-ways and property lines. Marked lines show those who dig the approximate location of underground lines and help prevent undesired consequences.

While underground lines and buried objects are the responsibility of the homeowner, Harrison Fence wants to dig safely and calls 811 on behalf of all homeowners. One easy phone call to 811 starts the process to get your underground utility lines marked for free. Local One-Call Center operators ask for the location of your digging job and route your call to affected utility companies. Your utility companies will then send a professional locator to your location to mark your lines within a two business days.

The homeowner is responsible for marking or locating private lines, including and not limited to irrigations systems, tree and plant roots, drainage pipes, private gas lines and any other buried objects that might be damaged. Harrison Fence, Inc. is not responsible for any damage to buried lines or objects.

POOL CODE

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 85% of the children who drown each year do so at their own or a friends' pool. The majority of these drownings can be attributed to momentary lapses in parental supervision combined with the lack of proper pool safety barriers. The consumer Product Safety Commission suggests installing a fence or other barrier, completely around the pool. If the house is part of the barrier, the doors leading from the house to the pool should be protected with an alarm or the pool should have a power safety cover.

North Carolinabuilding code requires pools to be protected by a fence, wall, building or other enclosure or combination thereof and requires several additional requirements be met. As always it is the customer's responsibility to comply with the codes and inspection requirements. Below is the North Carolina code as of August 2008:

15A NCAC 18A .2528 FENCES

Swimming pools shall be protected by a fence, wall, building, or other enclosure, or any combination thereof, which completely encloses the swimming pool area such that all of the following conditions are met:
(1) Constructed so as to afford no external handholds or footholds. However, the use of wire mesh fences with a mesh size of 2 1/4 inches or less is permitted;
(2) A four foot (1.22 m) minimum height (from the outside approach) is provided entirely around the swimming pool;
(3) The horizontal space between vertical members of the enclosure shall not exceed four inches; where the horizontal space between vertical members exceeds 1 3/4 inches there shall be at least 30 inches between any horizontal bottom rails or stringers and the next horizontal rails or stringers;
(4) The height of any opening under the bottom of the enclosure shall not exceed four inches (10 cm);
(5) Openings under and through a fringe or barrier with the gate(s) closed shall be sized so that a 4 inch diameter sphere cannot be passed through the openings;
(6) All gates and doors shall be equipped with self-closing and positive self-latching closure mechanisms and shall be equipped with locking devices. Gates provided to allow bathers access to the pool shall be located so as to open to the pool at a point where the water is no greater than five feet deep. On pools built after May 1, 1996, access gates shall open away from the pool except when natural topography or other conditions dictate that it open inward. Release of the latch on the self-latching device shall be activated:
(a) at a height no less than 54 inches above grade; or
(b) on the pool side of the gate at a distance of no less than three inches below the top of the gate provided. On fences constructed after April 1, 2000 there shall be no opening greater than one-half inch within 18 inches of where the latch release is activated when the gate is closed; or
(c) by a card reader, key, or combination lock.
(7) Gates provided specifically for access to equipment rooms shall be locked at all times when not in use by the pool operator;
(8) Ground level doors and windows opening inside the pool enclosure must be self-closing or child protected by means of a barrier or audible alarm; and
(9) Self-closing, self-latching gates are not required for gates that are kept locked, or for entrances where access is controlled by a gate attendant and a lifeguard is on duty in the pool area.
