DO THIS BEFORE YOU DIG.
Call before you dig! CALL DIGSAFE BY DIALING 811. It's the law.
Homeowners and even some contractors can make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked. But every digging job requires a call—even small projects like planting trees and shrubs.
The depth of utility lines varies. And there may be multiple utility lines in a common area. Call two days in advance of digging and a DigSafe representative will send out someone to mark underground facilities.
PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING AT LEAST 2 DAYS IN ADVANCE:
Call DIGSAFE by Dialing 811.
