No matter where you live, the gas, electric, cable TV, water and sewer lines that
serve you may be underground.
If you are planning a project that involves digging, state law requires you to notify Diggers Hotline or MISS DIG at least three working days in advance. We'll come to your home at no charge to mark the buried utilities on your property, so they won't be cut or damaged by you or your contractors. It's one phone call that can save time, money — and your life!
