Call 811 – Know What’s below, call before you dig:
Building a deck? Planting a tree? Installing a mailbox? 811 is the toll-free number you should call before you begin any digging project. The national "Call Before You Dig" number, 811, was created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. Every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can harm yourself or those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs. Whether you are a homeowner or a professional excavator, one call to 811 gets your underground utility lines marked for FREE.
