When planning outdoor work that requires digging such as planting a tree, putting in a new children’s play set or excavating for construction, visit www.811Now.com or call 811 before you dig.

Each year, millions of dollars in property damage, personal injuries and even loss of life occur because of careless digging where underground facilities were not located prior to excavating.
