National 811 Day promotes safe digging
from Point of Beginning
Out of sight and often out of mind, underground utilities — electricity, gas, water, telephone and high-speed Internet — are vital to our everyday life. Yet every 10 minutes, an underground utility is damaged because someone digs without calling 811. Known as the Diggers Hotline, 811 is a national network of call centers that provide valuable information to homeowners and contractors about the location of underground utilities.
