SEPTEMBER 2011  PAGE 5 PLAY IT SAFE MONTHLY REPORT Before you dig


Know what’s down there


BY GUY DALE coordinator of safety & loss control


Whether it’s a new deck or a landscaping project, fall is a great time for outdoor plans.


If your projects include digging, make sure the job can be done safely. Underground utilities, such as buried gas, water, and electric lines, can be a shovel thrust away from turning a summer project into a disaster.


To find out where utility lines run on your property, dial 811 from anywhere in the country a few days prior to digging. Your call will be routed to a local “one call” center. Tell the operator where you’re planning to dig and what type of work you will be doing. They will contact the local utilities.


In a few days, a locator will arrive to mark the location of any underground lines, pipes, and cables with flags or marking paint so you’ll know what’s below. Then the safe digging can begin.


Although many homeowners tackling do-it-yourself digging projects are aware of “Call Before You Dig” services, most don’t take advantage of the service.


Although light gardening typically doesn’t call for deep digging, other seemingly simple tasks like planting shrubs or installing a new mailbox post can damage utility lines. A severed line can disrupt service, harm diggers, and potentially result in fines and repair costs.


Never assume the location or depth of underground utility lines. There’s no need: the 811 service is free, and sure beats losing power.
