Building a deck? Planting a tree? Installing a mailbox? 811 is the number you should call before you begin any digging project. The number 811 was created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while digging. Every digging job requires a call – even small projects such as planting trees or shrubs. If you do not call and disrupt utility service you are responsible for any fines and repair costs.
Be smart & call before you dig!
Whether you are in Minnesota or Iowa, calling from a cell phone or a landline all you need to do is call 811! It’s that simple!
