Did you know that a simple job like planting a tree in your yard can jeopardize your safety? It’s important to know where underground power lines are located before you begin any digging project.

Always call 811 before you dig to have underground power lines marked. The call is free and having the lines marked is free too.

This informational video gives you the 411 on 811.
