Outside the Home Planning to plant a tree or install a fence or deck? WAIT! Here’s what you need to know first. Homeowners often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked, but every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees and shrubs. Gas pipelines can be located anywhere – under streets, sidewalks and yes even in your yard. Damaging a pipeline can cause a dangerous break or leak, can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and can result in injury or expense. Calling 811 before every digging job gets your underground utility lines marked for free and helps prevent undesired consequences. For more information about staying safe visit .
