Know what's below. Call 811 before you dig.

Know what's below. Call before you dig.No matter how large or small your digging project is, it is important to "Call 811 or 888-721-7877 or click sc1pups.org before you dig!"

By making one simple FREE phone call or by filling out an online form, you can protect yourself from costly fines, repairs, personal injury and inconvenient outages.

Here's how it works:

At least 3 business days prior to digging, call P.U.P.S. by dialing 811 or 888-721-7877.

A P.U.P.S. representative will record the location of the digging site and notify member utility companies of your intent to dig.

Each utility company will then send one of their employees or a contract locator to your dig site to mark the location of their utility lines.

Once your lines have been marked, you may begin carefully to dig, keeping in mind the 2 1/2 feet allowance on either side of the markings.
