Call Before You Dig
Excavation is the single largest cause of damage to the nation’s pipeline system. It accounts for nearly 40% of all accidental spills. You can help maintain the integrity of the pipeline system and prevent accidents by using the nationwide Call-Before-You-Dig service, available by calling 811. Anyone who will be digging or excavating using mechanized equipment can make one telephone call to give notice of their plans to dig in a specific area. The 811 center then acts as a clearinghouse to inform owners and operators of underground facilities so that they can go out and mark their facilities, usually within 48 or 72 hours.
