Call Before You Dig
If you’re planning any projects that require digging, such as installing fence posts or planting trees, stop and think twice about what may be hidden underground. Underground utility lines may be just below the spot where you’re getting ready to dig.
Although underground electric lines are insulated, you can still be injured if you cut through the insulation. Even if the insulation is only nicked, you may find your home without power weeks later after moisture has been able to seep into the line.
So, for your safety and comfort, please request utility locates before you dig by calling 811 or using the available online service.
