The One Call laws vary by state and have different requirements for the excavator, but most require at least a three-day notification prior to the beginning of excavation activities. Taking the time to Call Before You Dig, may reduce disruption of service, accidents, injuries, and possible delay of your project.
Always call “811”! Remember every digging job requires a call whether you are a homeowner or professional excavator – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs or installing a mail box or fence.
“811” is a universal number no matter the state you reside in, by dialing these three digits you will be connected directly to your state one call center.
