Need to Dig on Your Property?
Before any digging on your property, it is highly suggested you call MISS DIG, a
free service that will locate all of the utilities in your yard before you begin
your digging project. Utilities can be buried from two inches to over 10 feet
underground. Locating all utilities in advance can prevent costly repair work,
as well as save your life! You can reach MISS DIG at 1(800)482-7171 or 811#. It will
take MISS DIG up to 36 hours to locate your utilities, so plan in advance of
your project to keep yourself safe!
MISS DIG - What does that flag Mean?
If you notice colored flags in your yard or along the roadway, it is an
indicator that someone is planning to perform underground construction in that
area. The following utility companies are represented by colored flags as
||Sanitary Sewer and Storm Sewer
||Reclaimed Water Irrigation
||Gas, Oil, Steam, or Petroleum
