Call Before You Dig

This is the time a year when many projects get started by both your company and your customers.  It’s important to remember to Call Before You Dig! 

A new, 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. Every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs.

811 is the designated call before you dig phone number that directly connects you to your local one call center. Each state has different rules and regulations governing digging, some stricter than others. Below, please find state-specific information. 

Don’t forget to share this information with your customers too!
