Always Call Before You Dig
Call 811 Breakfast with Biff

Well you called before digging, waited for your lines to be marked, and now it's time to roll up your sleeves and get to work!

By now locator crews, possibly from multiple companies, have been to your property and made sure to mark the approximate location of your underground utility lines. Check the area before proceeding with your project-if a member utility has not responded or if underground facilities are clearly present and not located, call your state one call center again to have the area located properly.

Now, you are now officially ready to dig!

When digging, make sure to always dig around the marks, not on them. Some utility lines may be buried at a shallow depth, and an unintended shovel thrust can bring you right back to square one - facing potentially dangerous and/or costly consequences.

Now that you've made the smart call to 811 and protected yourself, your family and neighborhood, make sure to spread the word about 811.

Don't forget that with time, erosion or root structure growth may shift the locations of your utility lines, so remember to call again, each time you are planning a digging job. Safe digging is no accident.

Know what's below. Always call before you dig.
