Before You Dig
Digging on your property? Call 811, it’s the law.
Electric power lines, natural gas pipelines, water pipes, communications lines, and other utility services can be within a few feet of the ground. Not knowing where they are can result in personal injury, property damage and service interruptions. Even a small dent or a scrape can cause damage, resulting in a leak or service-wide disruptions.
When planning any type of excavation, call 811 at least three full working days before digging, drilling, or blasting. This national service, which is performed at no cost to your business, helps keep everyone safe. When your company or contractor calls 811, the national Call Before You Dig center will notify Liberty Utilities and other participating utilities, allowing us to mark our underground wires, pipes or cables so you’ll know what areas to avoid. This service is provided free of charge.
We’ll mark the appropriate areas according to this easy to follow color-coded system.
Then you’ll be ready to dig safely! Be sure to dig around the markings and not on them. Safe digging keeps you, your family, and your friends secure and protected.
