Safe Digging is no ACCIDENT – Call 811 before you DIG!

An underground utility line is damaged every nine minutes because someone excavates without dialing 8-1-1 in advance of excavation. Damage to underground utilities can be costly, disrupt utility service to you or neighbors, or cause injury.

What types of diggin projects should you call about? You should call 811 when you are:

  • Installing a fence or mailbox post
  • Building a deck
  • Installing a pond or patio
  • Planting a tree or bush
  • Gringing a tree stump

Did you hire a contractor for your excavation project? Ask to see the Pennsylvania 811 serial number before you let the excavator dig on your property.

Take a few minutes to call 811 or submit an online form.
