The paint used for these markings is water-based and will naturally fade over time.

Although the markings may cause temporary inconvenience, they are crucial in ensuring the safety of you, your neighbors, and construction workers. By clearly indicating what lies beneath the surface, they allow for necessary precautions to be taken before any digging or excavation begins. As such, it's essential not to remove or paint over the markings.
