Before you dig, call 811 to locate underground utility lines.
Utility lines beneath the ground provide all the essentials of a safe, modern home, including electricity, water, natural gas and sewer. To ensure your safety, call 811 to locate them before you start any projects that involve digging on your property—like landscaping, fence installation or construction. It's free and it's the law, one that can prevent thousands of dollars in damage and the risk of injuries.
Call 811. It's free. It's the law.
Here's what happens next after you call 811 to have underground utilities located.
- A utility locator comes out to your home or business.
- The contractor locates natural gas and utility lines on your property—for free.
