Stay Safe, Dig Smart

April is National Safe Digging Month and staying away from underground utility lines is as easy as 8-1-1. That is the underground utility locating service number to call before you put a shovel into the ground.  Installing a mailbox, building a deck, planting a tree and laying a patio are all examples of digging projects where a call to 811 should be one of the first steps you take.  Calling 811 before you dig will prevent damage to underground electric and gas lines and keep you, your family and neighbors safe.
