Grab the phone before you pick up your shovel.

Whether you want to plant a tree or install a new sprinkler system, call before you dig to avoid damaging utilities. It's the law! We will come out and mark underground utility lines in colored paint free of charge. This will help you avoid cutting into the lines and prevent costs associated with damage.

Dial 811 or call (800) 424-5555 to schedule an appointment, which must be made two days in advance. Find more information and enter your request online.
