Call Before You Dig

Attention Homeowners! Are You Digging?

Remember to call before you dig 1-800-272-1000 to locate underground facilities.

The Underground Facility Protection Act, better known as the “One Call Law,” was signed into law in October 1994. This law requires that anyone digging must call 1-800-272-1000, so that operators can mark out their underground utilities. Anyone digging to install, remove or replace trees, tree stumps, curbs, street and sign posts, mailbox posts, fences, construct decks, additions or create new gardens, etc. must call 1-800-272-1000.

The One-Call System will notify the operators of underground facilities to mark out your planned activity. You must wait three (3) business days for your mark out and not more than 10 days before you begin your project. Your notification is good for 30 business days.

Remember…..It’s The Law!
