Building a deck? Planting a tree? Installing a mailbox? 811 is the number you should call before you begin any digging project. A new, federally-mandated national "Call Before You Dig" number, 811 was created to protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects.
EVERY digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can harm yourself or those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs.
Smart digging means calling 811 before each job. Whether you are a homeowner or a professional excavator, one call to 811 gets your underground utility lines marked for FREE!!
No matter if your excavation job is large or small, do the safe thing. Call USA North 2 working days to 14 calendar days before you dig. Your location request number (USA North ticket) is good for 28 calendar days in California and Nevada. Failure to call USA North regarding your project can result in a fine and/or the cost of any damages.
