April is National Safe Digging Month

Post Date:04/04/2017 8:35 AM
  • Lead April is Safe Digging Month. Call 8-1-1 two days before you start a digging project, it's free and it's the law.

Safe Digging Month is a collaborative effort of the Common Ground Alliance (CGA), national one-call centers and other organizations to remind everyone that no matter the size of the project, the law requires you to notify Arizona811 so that all underground utilities can be located and marked.

Some utility lines may be buried at a shallow depth and an unintended shovel thrust can have potentially dangerous and/or costly consequences. Knowing the location of buried facilities is the simplest and easiest way to prevent accidental utility strikes, which keeps everyone safe and protects the vital utilities we rely on every day.

Call at least two full working days before the start of your digging project. IT’S FREE AND IT’S THE LAW!

For more information on 811, visit the Arizona 811 website at arizona811.com or simply inquire by calling 8-1-1. Visit mesaaz.gov/energy for more information.
