Call before you dig this spring

Thanks for letting me post here, Michal! I just wanted to remind all the handymen and women out there that April is National Safe Digging Month across the country. National Safe Digging Awareness Month is dedicated to informing gardeners and DIYers about the importance of calling 811 to have their buried utility lines marked before they dig. An underground utility line (think natural gas, cable, fiber optics) is accidentally struck once every TWO minutes in the U.S., and these accidents can cause community power outages or, even worse, serious personal injury or even death.

If you’re planning any outdoor digging project whether it be building a deck, installing a mailbox or planting a tree, call 811 to have your underground utility lines marked. 811 is the national call-before-you-dig number, and it will connect you to your local one call center. Reps from your local one call center will dispatch locators from the respective utility companies to come mark the buried lines on your property. Once the lines are marked, you are safe to dig!

Play this video to see how a call to 811 works.

Thanks for helping keep our communities safe by calling 811 before you dig! I work with the Common Ground Alliance (CGA), the national association dedicated to protecting underground utility lines and the people who dig near them. I’m here if anyone has questions about projects that require a call or what the colors of the lines mean.

Though I’m about to mock what happened last time I called, it’s still definitely a “must” to call, but my experience in calling for information before I put in pop-up sprinklers was that…

PG&E came out and drew a careful diagram of where they believed the gas line runs. I never found it. I believe their markings (makes sense from where the meter is and all), it’s just got to be three or four feet down.

The water and sewer folks came out and drew random scribbles and “OK” on one side of my lawn, and it was a darned good thing that I could check under the house to see where the lines came in through the foundation and where the meter was in the sidewalk, because those suckers were nowhere near where the marks were, and were right near the surface.

Still a good idea to call, but be careful and double-check by whatever means you can anyway.

Yeah it’s still a good idea to call before you dig. IT’s fast and free around here. They normally come out in a day or two. It might save your life or wallet.
