Call 811 Before You Dig

It's the law

shovel-digging

State law requires that you contact Dig Safe at 811 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.

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.

If you suspect a gas leak, move to a safe location and call 911. After you've called 911 and are in a safe location, you can report the emergency to us at 1-800-592-2000.
