April is Safe Digging Month
April 1st is the first day of National Safe Digging Month! If you’re planning any digging projects this month, why not call 811 TODAY to know what’s below before you dig?
Not calling 811 before digging, could knock out utility service, injure yourself or face fines. Always Call 811 before putting a shovel in the ground.
One easy phone call to 811, starts the process of having your underground utility lines located for FREE.
We accept locate requests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Buried utilities could exist just about anywhere you dig. Homeowners and contractors can help prevent damage to underground utilities and prevent service interruptions by calling TN811 at least 3 working days prior to excavating.
TN811 gathers information from anyone who is excavating, processes it using our GeoCall Ticket/Mapping system, and notifies underground utility operators that may have utilities in the area. The owners of the utilities then send personnel to locate and mark/identify their utilities.
