Boston Real Estate for Sale

Ever noticed a bunch of spray-painted lines on the street? Of course you have (I’m not talking about graffiti).

What do these strange markings mean?

The standard color-coding system used by most utilities is:

Red: Electric power lines, cables or conduit; lighting cables.

Yellow: Gas, oil, steam, petroleum or other hazardous liquids or gases.

Orange: Communication, cable TV, alarms or other types of signal lines, cables or conduits.

Blue: Water and irrigation lines.

Green: Sewer lines, storm sewer facilities or other drain lines.

Just thought you should know.
