Call 811 before you dig
Dial 811 from anywhere in the country a few days prior to digging, and your call will be routed to your local One Call Center. Tell the operator where you are planning to dig and what type of work you will be doing. Your affected local utilities companies will be notified about your intent to dig. Within a few days, they will send a locator to mark the approximate location of your underground lines, pipes and cables, so you’ll know what’s below – and be able to dig safely.
Remember, always call 811 before you start any digging project! You will avoid injury, expense, embarrassment – and a very inconvenient day in the dark.
