Pipeline Safety – Contact 811 Before You Dig

Avoid hazards and prevent pipeline damage by contacting underground service alert before you dig.

Underground utility pipelines can be located anywhere, including under streets, sidewalks and private property – sometimes just inches below the surface. Hitting one of these pipelines while digging, planting, or doing demolition work can cause serious injury, property damage, and loss of utility service.

Whether you are planning to build a major development or just landscaping your yard, make sure to submit a request online or call 811, a free service available to everyone. Representatives will coordinate with the ga company and other utility owners in the area to mark the locations of buried utility-owned lines.
