Fall is coming and it’s a great chance to finish up those last outdoor projects before the snow flies. Did you know that digging without calling 811 first increases the possibility you’ll damage an underground utility service for you or your neighborhood? You definitely don’t want to be the person responsible for an accidental “blackout”.
Did you know that many utilities are buried just a few inches below ground? You can easily hit a line when digging for simple gardening projects, like planting flowers or small shrubs. Make the call to 811 anytime you’re putting a shovel in the ground to keep yourself and your community safe. An 811 representative will notify appropriate utility companies to mark buried lines so you can dig safely around them.
