National Safe Digging Month 

The most common cause of outside natural gas leaks is digging or construction that disturbs natural gas pipelines. To keep your property safe, don’t allow anyone to dig or drill on your property unless the locations of all buried pipelines and cables have first been marked.

"The greatest risk to underground natural gas pipelines is accidental damage during digging.  Sometimes even a homeowner with a small shovel does the harm. At other times, it’s construction  equipment, such as a backhoe."    - John McDill, VP of Pipeline Safety

An easy—and free—way to get this done is to call 811 at least three days before you want to dig. You’ll reach an 811 call center, which will coordinate with us, the electric company and other utilities to mark all the utility-owned underground pipes and cables.
