About to Dig? Call 811

Posted by on April 1, 2016


Are you planning a landscape project?  Before you dig, call 811 from anywhere in the country a few days prior to digging.  Your call will be routed to your local One Call Center.  Tell the operator where in your yard work will occur and what type of work will be performed.  The affected local utility companies will be notified.

Within a few days, a locator will come on-site and to locate and mark underground lines: power, gas, phone, cable.  Water is only marked from the street to the meter.

Plan ahead.  811 service will need two working day advanced notice.

  1. Thanks, Helen, I wasn’t aware there was a central line for routing calls…a whole lot easier than remembering all those different numbers!
