DO THIS BEFORE YOU DIG.

DigSafe 811 logo

Call before you dig! CALL DIGSAFE BY DIALING 811. It's the law.

Homeowners and even some contractors can make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked. But every digging job requires a call—even small projects like planting trees and shrubs.

The depth of utility lines varies. And there may be multiple utility lines in a common area. Call 72 hours in advance of digging and a DigSafe representative will send out someone to mark underground facilities.

PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING AT LEAST 72 HOURS IN ADVANCE:

Call DIGSAFE by Dialing 811.
