Call 811 Before You Dig

A shovel hitting an underground power line can be as dangerous as contacting an overhead line. When planting trees, digging holes for fence posts, installing underground sprinklers or for other digging projects, please play it safe.

Call before you dig

Call 811 to reach your local utility locating service at least 48 hours before you dig.

When digging within two feet of the marked area, only use small hand tools such as a garden trowel and avoid contact with the utility line. Keep in mind that utility installation is not the same for all utilities and requirements have changed through the years. Not all utilities are installed with protective casings and can be vulnerable to damage by tools as simple as a shovel. Always proceed with caution when digging around utility lines.

Please note, your underground locate request does have an expiration date. If you need to dig beyond the expiration date, you must contact your utility notification center, at least two business days before the expiration date, to update your request.
