Think Safety First and Contact VA811 if Digging
Tuesday | April 18, 2023

April is National Safe Digging Month, and REC reminds homeowners and professional excavators to always visit before digging on any property. 

Even before you dig for simple yard projects like gardening and landscaping, it’s important to contact VA811 to have any underground power lines, natural gas lines, communication cables, or water and sewer lines marked. To prevent serious injuries, property damage and inconvenient service outages, it’s better to know where these underground utility lines are before starting a project.

How works:

  • Submit your ticket at least three days before you plan to begin your project.
  • Contractors will locate and mark where underground utilities are on your property. 
  • When working on your project, carefully dig within two feet of markings as they indicate the approximate location of underground facilities.
