Anytime You Need to Dig, Please Call 811 First—It’s Free

Spring officially begins this month, and if you plan to do some planting, make sure to call 811 to have underground utilities marked for you first—no matter how deep you’ll be digging. Representatives of the various utilities in your area—electricity (Central Lincoln), water, sewer, natural gas, cable, etc.—will come out within two days and temporarily mark any underground locations of lines on your property, so make certain to plan ahead. This service is free—and protects you from possible injury or even death if you accidentally hit a buried line with a shovel or other equipment.
