That is true if the meter is on the side of your house.
At our farm (McLoud Co-op - Carver County  - MN) the meter is on the pole (also a disconnect switch)
in the middle of the yard. Everything from there to the different buildings is our responsibility.

As i see it the meters are in the Electrical Building so everything from there is the Museum's
purview.

Either way a good map is a must, I measured mine from the house and other buildings just to save wondering now close I am to the lines. For the museum it's a must to have a very good map of the electric, communications, drain and water lines so there's no guessing as to whether a locate is needed.

Great update Brendan!  I hope you and Start and others continue to provide visual and descriptive coverage of this very important, but not necessarily sexy, project to get underground power to all parts of the Sheepscot campus.

I have a friend that is an electrician, he marks circuits at the breaker and at the outlet or machine so there is no time wasted finding which circuit you have. It saves a lot of guessing. I hope our electrician has the same thought. And yes, you still check to make sure the power is off even when everything is marked.
