Always Call 811 Before you Dig

One of the greatest challenges to safe utility operations is accidental damage caused by excavation. To prevent these accidents, law requires property owners to call 811 at least 48 hours before you plan to dog. Your one-call center will determine if there are any buried utilities in the area, and utility companies will be notified to identify and clearly mark the location of their lines at no cost to you.

Never assume you know where underground utilities are located. Even striking a single line can cause serious injury, fines, high repair costs, and outages.
