Dig Safe

Personal injury, dangerous environmental conditions, and extensive property damage can be avoided if underground utility lines are located before you dig. Digging without calling can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, harm you and those around you, and potentially result in fines and repair costs.

Call 811 before you dig!

Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling 811 before each job.
