Are you planning your next landscape or home improvement project? Many times such jobs require digging up the earth, so you should be aware that the subterranean world is home to more than just burrowing worms and ground squirrels. Lines, cables and pipes are housed there too. And no matter how experienced you may be, it can be easier than you think to run into problems when the shovels come out. These problems can affect your entire neighborhood, potentially disrupting service, or can lead to an unsafe situation. To avoid hazards, repair work or fines, you should call 811 before getting to work. Learn more about this free service and how it helps with digging safety.
