Every digging job requires a call to 811 before you dig – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. Whether you’re a homeowner or professional excavator, one call to 811 before you dig gets underground utility-owned lines marked for FREE.

So before digging, be sure to:

  • Call 811 at least two working days before starting any digging project
  • Wait for the site to be marked
  • Respect the marks
  • Dig with care

It’s free. It’s easy.

Digging without calling can result in a natural gas leak, which has the potential to disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, cause an evacuation, ignition, property damage, injury, or loss of life, and potentially result in fines and repair costs. Calling 811 before every digging project gets your underground utility-owned lines marked for free and helps prevent undesired consequences. Be aware, however, that customer buried piping can’t be located by calling 811.
