Digging Damage Prevention Reminder - Call 811 Before You Dig

When planning any type of construction, home improvement, or landscaping project that requires digging or excavating, call 811 to notify the underground utility line locating service, known as the One Call Center in your area, at least 48 hours, beginning at 7 a.m. on the next working day, before you are scheduled to begin the project.

At no charge, the One Call Center will transmit the information to facility owners or their designated representatives to locate buried utility lines such as gas, electric, phone, and cable television, with high visibility safety paint and/or flags. These markings can help you avoid damage that can cause serious injury, significant expense, and service outages.

Don't begin work until the lines have been marked or cleared as no conflict. If in doubt, contact the One Call Center at 811.
