call before you dig - click here for all the information







know what's below   Call 811 before every digging job to have the underground utility lines marked for free.

Whether you are a homeowner or a professional contractor, be smart and call 811 before each job.

Each color markings represents a utility type:
RED   Electric
ORANGE   Communications: Phone, Cable TV
BLUE   Potable Water
GREEN   Sewer/Drainage
YELLOW   Gas or Petroleum Pipe Line
PURPLE   Reclaimed Water
WHITE   Premark Site of intended excavation

The depth of utility lines vary and there may be multiple utility lines in a common area.

Homeowners often decide they don't need to call before digging, but every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees and shrubs. 

Digging without calling can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, cause injuries and could potentially result in fines and repair costs.
