How to Dig Safely

Call MISS DIG 811 before you dig

Because what you can’t see can hurt you

Just because you can’t always see natural gas pipelines or power lines doesn’t mean they aren’t buried below your garden or hiding behind trees. A major cause of leaks is damage from someone accidentally striking an underground pipeline. These damages are more than just an inconvenience, they can lead to personal harm, physical damages and financial loss.

Digging Within 4 Feet of Marked Lines

When you must dig within 4 feet of marked lines, you must take extra precaution and carefully hand dig to expose the marked lines. The stakes, flags or paint provided by MISS DIG show only the approximate location of underground utility facilities. Locating underground facilities is not an exact science, and electronic locating equipment has limited capabilities, so the actual location of underground facilities will vary from the position of the flags or stakes.

  • Avoid Digging Within 4 Feet of Marked Lines if Possible
  • If Unavoidable, First Expose Lines with Hand Tools

If you must dig within 4 feet of markers, use hand tools (like a shovel with a wooden handle) to carefully expose buried utility lines. Once you have positively identified the location of underground utilities, then and only then can you use power equipment to complete the excavation.

Natural Gas Safety

Natural Gas Safety

If you smell natural gas (a rotten egg odor) or suspect a leak, remember:
  • Leave the area immediately
  • Don't try to locate the source of the leak
  • Don't use an electric device
