Call Before You Dig

Public Service and Safety Announcement

BEFORE you dig or excavate in your road/street right-of-way or yard, please:

  • Protect Yourself
  • Protect the Environment
  • Protect the Underground Infrastructure

IMPORTANT NOTE: You should know that not all underground facilities will be located by the same company. Many service providers with underground facilities are not members of the “One Call” system. You may need to contact several companies prior to digging. Therefore, try to learn who you may need to notify before making this first phone call. The following protection services may be able to provide you with telephone numbers for other underground service providers in your area. We understand that it may seem to be time consuming. But avoiding the dangers, inconvenience and costs of accidentally digging or excavating into underground facilities is truly worth the effort.

Please call any of the numbers listed below BEFORE you dig or excavate!

Be prepared: The organizations listed will need specific information from you, including:

  • Your Name
  • Address where the digging or excavating will be done (including the County and Township)
  • Telephone numbers to reach you
  • Lot number (if new subdivision or development)
  • At least 48 hours previous notification to the actual location service
  • Directions to the property (including the closest street or road intersection)
