Today August 11 or (8/11) is a good time to think about calling before you dig.  Before digging for installing new flowers, shrubs, stormwater ponds, septic tanks or building a new something in the yard call 811 or 1-800-282-7411 or at least 48 hours prior to digging.


Even the farming community should call before they dig.  If you are removing sediment from ditches and moving back onto the field, digging the soil out of the ditch could cause you to hit some of the buried wires or pipes.  So, call before you dig.
