Call Before You Dig

What is 811?

One easy phone call to 811 starts the process to get your underground utility lines marked for free. Operators will ask for the location of your next digging job and notify the affected utility companies. Each utility will send a professional locator to mark your lines. 

By calling 811, you will prevent unintended consequences such as injury to you or your family, damage to your property, utility service outages to the entire neighborhood and potential fines and repair costs.

Make sure to always dig around the marks, not on them. Some utility lines may be buried at a shallow depth. Time, erosion or root structure growth may shift the locations of your utility lines, so remember to call each time you plan a digging job.
