Call 811 Before You Dig

Damaged Natural Gas Pipelines

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.

“Help protect your home, neighbors and community by calling 811 before you dig.  Having underground utility lines marked can prevent accidental damage from digging – either from a small shovel or a backhoe.  It’s easy to do, and it’s the law.” - John McDill, VP of Pipeline Safety
