SAFETY INFO

 

SEASONAL TIPS


Know the law before you dig.

Planning home improvements? Planting a tree or installing a fence? No matter how big or small the job is, start the job with a call to Dig Safe® at 811.

What is Dig Safe®?

Dig Safe® is a not-for-profit clearinghouse that notifies participating utility companies of your plans to dig. In turn, these utilities (or their contract locating companies) respond to mark out the location of their underground facilities. Dig Safe is a free service, funded entirely by its member utility companies. (Note: Dig Safe does not mark utility lines.)

It’s a risk to make faulty assumptions about when to notify Dig Safe. That’s why state law requires you to notify Dig Safe for even small projects, like installing a mailbox or planting shrubs. The depth of utility lines vary, and there may be multiple utility lines in a common area.

It’s important to know what’s below. Call 811 to avoid utility service disruption to an entire neighborhood, harm to you and those around you, as well as fines and repair costs.

After notifying Dig Safe, you must wait 72 hours in Massachusetts & New Hampshire. (Excluding weekends and legal holidays.)

During this time, utility representatives respond to mark their lines within your pre-marked area.
