Call Before You Dig
Before beginning any project which requires digging call 811 or 1-800-digtess (1-800-344-8377). Each utility operator will be notified and will mark underground utility lines to help prevent damage caused by excavation. Be sure to double check all utilities have been located as water, waste water and slurry are not mandated and may or may not participate in digtess. Every year homeowners, excavators, and construction crews cut active utility lines causing millions of dollars in repair and lost product. Locating utilities before digging can help prevent damage from construction efforts. It’s easy, it’s responsible, and it’s the law.
