Digging Safety

April is Safe Digging Month and the Texas Pipeline Awareness Alliance asks you to call before you dig.

Texas law says you need to call 8-1-1 before any digging, which includes large or small projects. Once you call, tell them where you plan to dig and what type of work you'll be doing. Then the company will send someone out to make sure the area is safe to dig.

Installing a mailbox, building a deck, and planting a tree are examples of digging projects that require you to call beforehand.
