Call 811 before you dig

Know what is 811 before you dig (or post signs)

1. Call 811 two full business days before you dig.

2.  Provide the following information

  • Name
  • Phone Number
  • Street Address
  • Dig Location
  • Nearest Intersection
  • Type of Work
  • Start date, time

3. Mark the digging area with white stakes or white spray paint.

4.  Wait for public utilities to be marked

5.  Locate other services such as sprinklers, power lines to a garage or grill, or invisible fencing.

6.  You must not dig any closer than 2' from any utility marking.

Digging or posting signs without knowing the approximate location of underground utilities increases the likelihood of an incident, which can cause serious injuries, service disruptions, and potential fines and repair costs.  If you're a professional excavator or a homeowner, smart digging always requires a call to 811.  The depth of utility varies, and there may be multiple utility lines in one common area.
