For National Safe Digging Month in April – and all year round – call 811 before digging so you can protect underground utility lines and pipes.
When you call the free 811 service before you start a project any time during the year, a technician will come to your house or work site to mark underground utility lines. These videos show how the process works.
Plan your project. Call before you dig
Call 811 before you dig anywhere on your property at least three days before starting a project. Call before installing septic tanks and sewer lines, swimming pools, wells, sprinkler systems and water lines, basketball goal posts, mailbox posts, fence and deck posts, trees and shrubs.
