Call Before You Dig811 is the number you should call before you begin any digging project.
There is a federally-mandated national "Call Before you Dig" number, 811, to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines. Every digging job requires a call - even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hiring a professional, smart digging means calling 811 before each job.
If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can harm yourself or those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs.
