One of the most potentially hazardous situations in residential areas, industrial plants and construction sites is accidental contact with underground electric power lines, natural gas lines, communication lines and other utility services.
In order to stay safe, always call 811 before digging. There’s no charge for this underground line locating service and the call is toll-free. Calling before you dig will not only save you money from a damage claim, it can also save your life.
When you call 811, you’ll be connected to the One Call Center which will notify area utilities to mark the approximate location of underground lines.
Most protection services require a 48- to 72-hour notice. Call 811 or 800.632.4949 for more information.
