Why Call 811 Before You Dig?
Nearly 60 percent of all incidents on utility pipelines result from excavation damage. The nationwide 811 One-Call program provides prompt and efficient notification to participating utilities to mark underground line locations. Digging without locating buried utility lines can cause injury, disrupt service and result in fines and repair costs.

Remember to call at least two to three business days before any digging. This is the law in all 50 states. The toll-free 811 service is free, and it can save you time and money. It's the SAFE thing to do.
