Call 811 Before You Dig

 

Call 811 at least three business days prior to digging, tell the operator where you’re planning to dig, what type of work you will be doing and affected local utility companies will be notified about your intent to dig. They’ll send a locator to mark the approximate location of public underground lines, pipes and cables, so you will know what’s below – and be able to dig safely.
