Call Before You Dig

 

Planning a home improvement job? Planting a tree? Installing a fence or deck? Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling 811 before each job.

 

Who
Georgia law requires everyone — including homeowners —to contact Georgia 811 at least 48 hours before beginning any mechanized digging on your property. If you are unsure as to whether you should notify Georgia 811 before you break ground, remember, even if your digging project is small, it’s always best to call!
What
Dial 811
When
Call 48 hours before you dig. Requests are accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Why
Electric cable, gas lines, water lines and waste-water lines could all be present under your property. Hitting these lines could result in injury, property damage or pollution of the environment. Georgia 811 will assist you in choosing a safe site for your excavation activities.
