Planning on digging anytime soon?
Perhaps you will be putting in a new flower border, planting a tree, or placing fence posts.

If so, all residents, contractors or anyone planning to dig are asked to notify on-line or call 811 or 1-800-332-2344 at least 48 hours before digging. These toll-free numbers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

When you call, member companies, such as the local water department and electric company, will be notified. Member companies will come to your site and mark their lines indicating the position of the line using spray paint so you may dig safely without hitting any utility lines. The different colored paints indicate the different utility lines.

However, when you DON'T call, you may:
  • Experience a serious or life-threatening injury;
  • Be responsible for repair costs to utility lines and/or experience other legal problems;
  • Interrupt services such as electricity, cable TV, gas, water, telephone, etc. to you and/or your neighborhood; and/or
  • Cause your job/project to be delayed.
Please have the following information available before you call:
  • Name and telephone number;
  • Alternate name and telephone number;
  • Whether work will be taking place within 10 feet of overhead power lines;
  • Type of work to be done;
  • Who the work is being done for;
  • City, County, State;
  • Location of work or street address;
  • Nearest intersecting street;
  • Distance and direction from intersecting street;
  • Extent of work to be done;
  • Special instructions for marking; and
  • Township, range and section (if known).
What do the markings mean?
Temporary markings play an important role nationwide for contractors, construction crews, homeowners and any others involved with excavating on a particular property. They are all part of the American Public Works Association's (APWA) Uniform Color Code, used to indicate the exact locations of underground utility lines.

Here's what the colors signify:

White
Proposed Excavation
Pink
Temporary Survey Markings
Red
Electric Power Lines, Cable, Conduit and Lighting Cables
Yellow
Gas-Oil-Steam, Petroleum and Gasesous Materials
Orange
Communications, Telephone, Cable TV, Alarm and Signal Lines
Blue

Purple
Reclaimed Water, Irrigation, and Slurry
Green
Sanitary Sewers, Storm Sewers, Drains Lines
