How to Dig Safely

Call MISS DIG 811 before you dig

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 around you. They could be below your garden or hiding under trees. A major cause of gas leaks is damage done from someone striking an underground pipeline by accident. This damage is more than an inconvenience, it can lead to personal harm, physical damages and financial loss.

Digging Within 4 Feet of Marked Lines

When you need to dig within 4 feet of marked lines, you must take extra precaution. Make sure to carefully hand dig - this exposes the marked lines. Remember that the stakes, flags or paint put down by MISS DIG show only a rough estimate of the location of underground utility facilities. Note that this is not an exact science. While electronic locating equipment is used, it has limited capabilities, so the actual location of underground facilities could vary from the position of the flags or stakes.

  • Avoid Digging Within 4 Feet of Marked Lines if Possible
  • If This Can't Be Avoided, 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 found the location of underground utilities, then and only then can you use power equipment to complete the excavation.

Natural Gas Safety

If you smell natural gas (a rotten egg odor) or suspect a leak, remember:

  • Leave the area right away
  • Don't try to find the source of the leak
  • Don't use an electric device
