Call Before You Dig

(MONROE) – If you plan on working in your yard and that includes digging, you need to make a phone call first.

Nicholas Krzeminski of Michigan Gas Utilities says everyone should think safety first before you start any project that includes digging. Krzeminski says to call 8-1-1 and utility locate specialists will come to your home where they will locate and mark all underground utility services in your yard free of charge.

The 8-1-1 Miss Dig hotline is a coordinated, nationwide underground utility location system whose purpose is to keep everyone safe. At least three working days are required for locates prior to beginning a digging project.

Nationwide, a utility line is damaged by digging once every three minutes and one-third of these incidents are caused by failure of the homeowner or professional excavator to call 8-1-1.
