Matt Navitsky of the Common Ground Alliance has informed us of a new nationwide phone number, 811. This number has been established by the FCC to protect underground utilities as well as DIY homeowners and professional excavators.
Before any excavation project you are required to contact your local one-call center to come out and mark out the underground utility lines, cables, and pipes. But as of May 1st you just have to dial 811 anywhere in the country to reach your local one-call center.
We are behind anything that promotes homeowner safety and 811 is as close to an ounce of prevention that you can get.
