Dig Safe

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 Dig Safe at 811 before you dig.State law requires that you call Dig Safe at 811 or 888-DIG-SAFE (888-344-7233) at least 72 business hours prior to digging. Once notified, Dig Safe 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 Dig Safe 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 Dig Safe website.
