To help mark National Safe Digging Month – designed to encourage professional excavators and homeowners alike to dial 811 before digging – we thought we’d highlight some of the FAQs from the Call811.com website.
First, a reminder that 811, the “call before you dig” service, was created to help protect everyone from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines during digging projects. Every digging job requires a call – even small ones like planting trees or shrubs. Call 811 from anywhere in the country a few days before digging, and you’ll be connected with someone who will take down details about the job or project. In a few days a locator will come at no charge to mark the approximate location of underground lines, pipes and cables.
