Just because you can’t always see natural gas pipelines or power lines, it doesn’t mean they aren’t buried below your job site or hiding behind trees. The best way to stay safe around electricity and natural gas is to be thoroughly aware of their location and keep your distance. That means contacting MISS DIG 811 before starting excavation projects to avoid pipelines and power lines and staying clear of overhead lines. Always take the necessary precautions before starting a job. For more, check out our free library of resources and training materials. Contact our Public Safety Outreach Team with questions.
