Notify Dig Safe Before You Dig

You must contact DigSafe® at or call 811 before starting any digging project — it’s the law.

You may be eager to dig your shovel in and plant a beautiful birch in your front yard, or begin excavating a new lot, but don’t break any ground before notifying Dig Safe. In the event that you hit a utility line, you could incur a fine or cause injury to yourself.

By law, anyone planning to excavate is required to notify DigSafe by visiting or calling 811 at least three working days (72 hours) before any disturbance begins. logo
