Sabotaged system

Hello All,
My husband and I bought a house that had been a foreclosure. The previous owner had just put in a new sprinkler system and before he left he cut all the wires to the timer. The back yard is large and we havent been able to find the valves. We dont even have any idea of where we can turn the system on by hand. I have checked by the water pressure system, but had no luck. My question: since all of the wires have been severed is our only choice to dig up the backyard? I have contacted the city permit department and they do not have anything on file. Any advise?
Thanks, Mnorris

You can trace the wires with a locator, and find the valves. Then you can install a new controller.
