In many communities, electricity and natural gas are delivered through systems buried underground. Knowing where to dig is critical when you are working in areas with underground lines.
Before you begin any project that requires you to move earth such as digging fence posts, planting trees or excavating, call your state's one-call center first. Utility locators will come to your site to track, locate and mark your underground utility lines. This service is free in most states and could save money, time and possibly your life.
