Call Before You Dig!

image007Are you planning to do any significant digging for planting or construction in your garden or in the right of way near our streets? A new, federally-mandated national “Call Before You Dig” number, 811 has been created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. Calling 811 a few days prior to commencement of work will notify local utility companies, which will dispatch a crew to your site to mark the approximate location of your property’s utility lines. For more information, please visit the 811 website at
