5 Steps to Safe Digging
1 – Request a locate. Fill out this form or call 811 to request for your lines to be marked.
2 – Wait the required amount of time. For normal notice tickets, you must wait three full business days, not including the day you requested your locate.
3 – Check positive response (call 811 or 888-721-7877) to ensure that all the lines at your dig site have been marked.
4 – Respect the marks. Keep your marks in tact and call for a re-mark if the marks are destroyed by weather or other construction related activity.
5 – Dig carefully around buried utilities.
