Underground utilities are dangerous and you do not want to hit one when you are digging in your gardens. My crew and I never dig until clients’ utility lines are property marked by a professional, it’s the best (and only) way to ensure everyone’s safety.
Call 811 is the phone number you call before digging to protect yourself and others from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines.
Here’s why underground utilities are dangerous
According to Call 811:
There are millions of miles of buried utilities beneath the surface of the earth that are vital to everyday living like water, electricity and natural gas.
811 is the federally designated call before you dig number that helps homeowners and professionals avoid damaging these vital utilities. When you make the free call to 811 a few days before you dig, you’ll help prevent unintended consequences such as injury to you or your family, damage to your property, utility service outages to the entire neighborhood and potential fines and repair costs.
Spring is right around the corner and we are all anxious to get outside. But before you start digging, please call 811 and let the professionals mark your underground lines.
Happy almost spring, Friends!
