Before You Start Digging, Call
Attention, homeowners: Are you planning a major excavation in your yard? Planting a large tree, installing a swimming pool, adding a deck?
Then it’s important that you know about any lines, wires or cables that might be buried beneath your property, and there’s an easy way to find out.
Call the toll-free DigAlert number--(800) 227-2600--at least two working days before the start of the digging.
Underground Service Alert, which set up and monitors the phone service, will research your excavation site and notify the owners of any underground services there. Locators will be dispatched to mark the areas to avoid.
