811 – Do You Dig It?

The photos at the link below show a powerful gas line explosion. Although the cause turned out to be from corrosion and not someone hitting the line with an auger (according to Snopes), it is still a good visual reminder of why you need to have the utilities marked in your yard before you dig.

So the next time you are planning to plant a tree or install a fence, remember to call 811 a few days before hand. It’s much cheaper than having to pay to replace a cable or phone line; in fact it’s free!
