Planning a home improvement project?

Planting a tree? 

Installing a fence or deck?

WAIT! Here’s what you need to know first:

There is an underground network of gas lines, telephone, electricity and cable TV wires, as well as water and sewer connections that could be damaged if you dig in the wrong spot.

Ensuring the safety of those who work or live in the vicinity of underground facilities and protecting vital services is everyone’s responsibility. Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling for locates before each job. Homeowners often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked, but every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees and shrubs.
