811 Day – Call before you dig
August 11 is 8/11 on the calendar, a natural reminder for people to call 811.
Striking a single underground utility line can cause injury, repair costs, fines and
inconvenient outages. Every digging project, no matter how large or small, warrants a call to 811. It’s easy, and it’s free! Calling 811 before digging is the single easiest step you can take toward reducing the chance of causing damage to buried utilities.
Georgia Law states that anyone digging with mechanized equipment has to contact before digging, but it is the safe and smart thing to do for any project involving digging.
Contact Georgia 811 at least 3 business days prior to digging so that member utility companies can be notified of the intent to dig so that they are able to mark their lines.
