BEFORE YOU DIG, CALL 811!
Any type of digging requires a call. Building a deck? Planting a tree? Installing a fence or mailbox? Whether you are planning to hire a professional or complete a project by yourself, call 811 at least a few days before you start any digging.
811 is the phone number you call before digging to protect yourself and others from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines. There are buried utilities beneath the surface of the earth that are vital to everyday living like water, electricity and natural gas. 811 is the federally designated call before you dig number that helps homeowners and professionals avoid damaging these vital utilities. Making this call will help prevent unintended consequences such as injury to you or your family, damage to your property, utility service outages to the entire neighborhood and potential fines and repair costs.
