Call Before You Dig
Any person or business planning to dig a significant hole or trench on either private property or on a public right of way needs to call Dig Alert at 811, and notify them of your plans. This is the number for the Underground Service Alert Office and they will contact any utility within the excavation area to make sure that all underground utilities are located and marked before digging begins. A full 2-day notice is needed before you can dig. Emergency digging is not covered by this process.
The staff at the Underground Service Alert office will walk you through the process. This is a free service.
