Beneath our city's homes, businesses and sidewalks is an underground world of pipelines, wires and cables. Without guidance, there's no way to know how close you are to the danger of stumbling into one of these lines. The results of digging into the unknown could result in fatalities, disruption of services, and expensive repair costs.
Dig Smart and Safe - Call 811 First
Smart digging means calling 811 before each job. Whether you are a homeowner or a professional excavator, one call to 811 gets your underground utility lines marked for free.
The federally mandated national Call Before You Dig number, 811 was created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. People digging often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked due to concerns about project delays, costs and previous calls about other projects. These assumptions can be life-threatening.
