Remember to call 811 before you dig

Article Published 04/29/2015

Planning any yard excavation or hole digging this spring?
Be sure to call 811 at least two business days before you, dig, grade or excavate. A completed call to 811 will notify all participating utilities and they will send a representative out to mark where underground lines are for free.
According to Questar Gas Company, knowing where buried lines are in advance may protect you from injuries caused by accidentally hitting a gas, electric, cable, telephone, fiber-optic or other buried line.
Plus, it is the law to notify 811 properly before your dig.
Different colors mark what kind of utility lies underneath.
