Do I Really Need to Call?

Yes! It’s the Law

If you plan to disturb the earth with powered equipment, the law (PA Act 287, as amended by Act 50 of 2017) requires you to notify utility companies that may have underground lines in the area that you are digging. In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, dialing 811 allows you to make these notifications all at once instead of calling around to all the utility companies that service your neighborhood.
