Safe Digging

You must call 811 prior to beginning your project!
Are you planning any landscaping projects this summer?  Or maybe you’re thinking about installing a fence or putting in a swing set.  Before you start digging, there are a few facts you should check to ensure all of your outdoor projects go smoothly and safely.

Calling before you dig is important not only for safety reasons, but also because IT’S THE LAW!  By law, homeowners should contact O.U.P.S., 8-1-1 or 1-800-362-2764, at least 48 hours but no more than 10 working days (excluding weekends and legal holidays) or submit their request online with e-dig, the easy online remote ticket entry system for homeowners, before beginning any digging project.
