Summary

Today is 8-11, a great reminder to call 811 before any digging project. Don’t take any chances with your safety, call 811 and have the underground power lines located before digging. A free call to 811 at least 48 hours before you plan to dig can help you avoid serious injury, expenses or even possible penalties. Learn more about the 811 process in this short video.
