Call 811 Before You Dig
It took years to make it a farm … it takes one call to keep it safe.
If your activities include deep plowing, fence post installation, trenching, leveling, subsoiling, installing drain tile or other excavation work, call 811 toll-free three working days before starting any digging. A representative will mark underground lines at no cost.
One easy call gets free staking of underground utility lines and helps protect you or your workers from injury and expense. To know what’s below, always call 811 toll-free before you dig.
Agricultural and farm workers also should be aware of nearby pipelines and call 811 before deep plowing, trenching, leveling and other excavation work.
