Delineate the Site. It's mandatory that you outline the proposed excavation site with white paint or stakes.
Dial Before You Dig. It's the law. No matter what size job you plan, call before you excavate. The law provides penalties for those who do not comply.
Call at Least Two Working Days Before. You may call 14 days prior to excavation. But don't wait until the last minute!
You're responsible For Damage. If damage to underground utilities results from your digging, you may be charged the cost of repairing it - plus a fine.
Make only One Call. That's all it takes to have all underground lines on your site located and marked before you dig.
The Call Costs You Nothing. There's not charge to call the toll-free 800 number: 1-800-227-2600.
Calling Saves Time. The DigAlert process helps expedite your project by eliminating any searching for underground utilities.
Everyone Should Call - Not Just Professionals. Calling is just as important for property owners as it is for plumbers, electricians, contractors, landscapers, swimming pool builders, or anyone else.
Your Permit is not Valid Without a DigAlert Number. An excavation permit doesn't mean you're free of responsibility for damage to underground utilities. Make sure you obtain an Underground Service Alert/DigAlert number by calling: 1-800-227-2600.
