It is Spring again! I’m excited to shake off the winter blues and get out in the yard. If you’re like me, you like to get in a little trouble every now and again, getting in over my head with at least one yard project. However, one place where I don’t get in trouble is cutting any of the buried service drops going to my house. How…you may ask?
Before beginning to dig, dial 811 at least one week prior.
It’s for everything; don’t be shy about calling. Call for fences, mailboxes, gardens, trees…anything! Don’t just assume you will be fine; it is worth the time to make sure. If you don’t call, and you accidentally cut your service…you could be charged for the repair and have to listen to your family complain until it is repaired. It is NOT worth taking a chance.
Check out https://indiana811.org/ for the options in your area and a checklist of the information you will need to supply when calling.
Enjoy your project and be safe!
Please, call our office if you have any questions. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments of questions. I would like to hear from you!
