Don’t Forget 811 Before Any Digging Projects

Atlas Insurance Brokers - Rochester, MN

811 is a national phone number you can use to have any underground utilities on your property marked. The phone number is the same across the country and will automatically route to your state’s local 811 office. Best of all, the service is free of charge and is usually performed within a couple days.

Why do I need to use 811?

Hitting a buried utility line can be dangerous, cause a disruption in service for an entire neighborhood, and could cost you money.

When do I need to use 811?

Anytime you plan to dig, you should call 811. Many lines are buried only a few inches deep, so even small projects like mailbox installation or planting a flower bed could cause a disruption.

Don’t risk causing a costly disruption. Contact 811 before you do any digging. Simply dial 811 or MN residents can enter their request online at http://mn.itic.occinc.com/iMenu/mn/autologin.html.
