Be sure to arrange for utility location at least a few days before you start digging. Call 811 to arrange for the service; this number serves the entire U.S. (Visit www.call811.com for more details.) After you call 811, your local One Call Center will contact all the utility providers serving your property and arrange for them to come out and flag everything. You'll have to mark the area first so they know where to look for utilities; the 811 operators will explain how to do this when you make the call. Within a couple of days after calling 811, all your utilities should be identified, and you then can dig with confidence. One Call service is free — and required by law.
