BEFORE YOU DIG... Calling 811 is the most important step! 811 is the phone number you call before digging to protect yourself and others from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines. Call 811 at least a few days before you start any digging project. Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling 811 before each job.
Landscaping can hide or restrict important utility access to equipment for maintenance and repairs and it can make the equipment difficult to locate. When considering plants and trees for your yard, please do not plant or landscape near meters, power transformers or over/under power or water lines as over time, trees grow into the lines causing the potential for dangerous situations or extended outages. You can help by avoiding planting near electric or water meters, over or under utility lines and ensuring trees and shrubs are planted at least 10 feet from ground mounted transformers.
