The reason for that is that if one does not call call before dig, one would
be liable. If one does call and misunderstands, the survey company would be
liable. So those companies prefer to leave very clear marks.

The way it works in California is that the digger marks the work area
in white paint and submits the location to the USA hotline.  The hotline
distributes this to all of the utilities, which then mark the location of
their underground facilities, color coded (Blue - water, Red - power,
Orange - telco/cable, Yellow - gas).  The digger must will take care not
to damage anything marked.
