Always Call Before You Dig

Call 811 Before You Dig - It's the Law!

Spring has sprung. Even though you have the urge to get outside and work in the yard, we want to be sure that spring is the only thing that has sprung. If you spring a leak in a gas line, it means bad news for you and others.

Before you begin digging or excavating, it is important that you dial 811 to get underground lines marked. Not only is it important, it's the law! The law requires that you notify utilities at least 48 hours prior to digging (excluding weekends, holidays and the day you call).

To make notifying utilities easier, all calls can be made to a central agency, the Utilities Protection Center (UPC) of Georgia. The UPC can be reached at: 1800-282-7411.
