Dig Safe

Planning a dig? Contact Dig Safe (call 811) to make sure you avoid damaging utility lines. If someone has violated the Dig Safe law, you can report it to the DPU.

Whether you’re a homeowner working on a do-it-yourself project or a professional, you’ll want to make sure that you avoid damaging underground utility lines when you dig. Before you start your project, get in touch with Dig Safe Inc., a nonprofit organization that will notify your utility company about your project for free. Then, your utility company will help you plan a safe dig. You can contact Dig Safe by dialing 811 or (888) 344-7233.
