Call Before You Dig

Building an addition? Installing a fence? Planting a tree? Before you or your contractor begin digging, make sure you know where all the underground utility lines are around your property.

Call 811 before you dig!State law requires that you contact Call Before You Dig at 811 or 800-922-4455 at least 48 business hours prior to digging. Once notified, Call Before You Dig will contact member utilities to come to your site and mark underground utility wires, cables and pipelines.

This free service can protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines, which can cause harm to you and those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and potentially make you liable for fines and repair costs. Visit Call Before You Dig for more information.

Please note, utility companies will only mark the facilities they own or maintain. Private underground pipes and cables may not be owned or maintained by member utility companies. It is the responsibility of the property owner to investigate if any privately owned utilities are in the area.

More information, including Private Utility Locator contractors, is available on the Call Before You Dig website.
