It’s the law it always call before you dig. One free, easy call gets your utility lines marked AND helps protect you from injury and expense.
Safe Digging is No Accident: Always call 811 Before You Dig.
Before you plant that tree, dig that trench, or build that new garage on your property, call Gopher State One-Call at 811 or 800.252.1166.
Here’s how it works:
- Mark the borders of your excavation site with white stakes or white spray paint
- Be prepared to give the One-Call operator your name, phone number, address, the location of your dig site, the type of work you plan to do, and the start date& time of your dig.
- Gopher State One-Call operators answer the phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Weekends and holidays are for emergencies only
- Utility companies have 48 hours to locate their underground facilities, and digging must begin with 96 hours after calling Gopher State One-Call so plan your work accordingly.
