Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional,
smart digging means calling (8-1-1) or (1-800-922-1987) before each job.
Homeowners often 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. Digging without calling can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, harm you and those around you and potentially result in fines and repair costs.
Calling (8-1-1) or (1-800-922-1987) before every digging job gets your underground utility lines marked for free and helps prevent undesired consequences.
