Know what is below....Call 8-1-1 Before You Dig

Spring often brings on projects that require digging - planting a tree or shrub, building a fence or replacing a deck or patio.

If you are planning to do any digging make sure to call the Utilities Underground Location Center at 8-1-1 at least forty-eight hours before you begin your digging project.  They will send someone to mark where electric, gas, water, sewer and cable lines are buried.  This will help protect you from unintentionally hitting an underground utility line while working on a digging project.   

The last thing you want to do is to hit one of these underground lines.  You could harm yourself, disrupt service for you and your neighborhood and be held responsible for expensive repair costs.
