Before You Dig: Get in the Know!
811 is a federally-mandated national "Call Before You Dig" phone number designated by the FCC to eliminate the confusion of multiple "Call Before You Dig" numbers.
One easy phone call to 811 quickly begins the process of getting underground utility lines marked. Local One Call Center personnel will then notify affected utility companies, who will send crews to mark underground lines for free.
Knowing where underground utility lines are buried before a digging project begins helps to prevent injury, expense, and penalties. The depth of utility lines may vary and multiple utility lines may exist in one area. Even simple digging jobs can damage utility lines and can disrupt vital services to an entire neighborhood, harm those who dig, and result in expensive fines and repair costs. Marked lines shows those who dig the approximate location of underground lines and helps prevent undesired consequences.
