There’s Electricity Underground
We see the wires on utility poles everywhere we go, every day. But what
most folks don’t realize is how many wires there are running under our
roads, sidewalks, and — literally — our own backyards.
Dig Safe is a free service that helps keep residents safe by preventing
contact with underground power lines. It’s as easy to access as dialing
Call that simple number before you begin any project that involves
digging to find out if there’s any underground areas to avoid beneath
your property. You can learn more at the Dig Safe website.
When you inform Dig Safe of your plans, they will notify participating
utilities to mark the location of any underground lines. It might seem
like one extra step in your project, but it can be a life saver!
