Five steps for safe digging:

1) Notify

Call 811 or request online two to three days before you plan to start your project.

2) Wait

Expect a response to your request in two to three business days. Affected utilities will mark underground lines.

3) Confirm

Make sure all affected utilities have responded by comparing the markers to the list of utilities the 811 call center notified.

4) Respect

Use the markers as a guide for the duration of your project.

5) Dig Carefully

If you cannot avoid digging near the provided markers, consider moving your project.
