The Underground Service Alert Process
You may find yourself wondering how this safe digging service works. Firstly, give us a call at 811 before you even put your shovel in the ground. One of our underground service alert operators will then ask you for some information regarding your dig. The operator will ask where you plan to dig, how deep and your contact information. Once this call is over, 811 will begin sending people to survey and mark where any buried lines exist. After this is done, Safe Digging 811 will contact you and give you the go-ahead to begin your digging project. Make sure to mind the marks!
Damaged Utilities Are Dangerous! Please Call Before You Dig
Every 6 minutes, a utility line is damaged because someone didn’t call 811 before they started digging. Calling before digging can prevent damage to power lines, gas lines, communication cables and more. It can also prevent property damage, injury and in some extreme cases death. Calling the underground service alert at 811 can keep you from damaging important buried utility lines. So please, call Safe Digging 811 before you start any digging project.
