Notify the Pennsylvania One Call System by dialing 811 or using the Web Ticket Entry tool (www.pa1call.org) at least three business days prior to digging.
This service will arrange to have underground utility lines marked so that you can dig a safe distance away. Call before you dig, blast, bore, trench, drill, grade or excavate in any way. Even small jobs require a call.
Before you notify, pre-mark your proposed dig area with white paint, flags or stakes.
This helps locators more easily mark the affected utilities.
Wait for utilities to be marked before digging.
Once utilities are marked, respect the marks, hand expose to verify location and dig with care.
Always contact your state 811 center before digging and for the most current requirements.
Notify 811 well ahead of digging so that underground utilities can be marked and you can work safely.
