Call Before You Dig

Call before you dig…it’s the law! Calling 811 is the most important step!

Washington 811 logoDigging may seem like no big deal, but regardless of where you live or conduct your business:

  • The gas, electric, cable, water, and sewer lines that serve you, may very well be underground
  • We urge you to call 811 first because hidden dangers could be just beneath the surface, no matter how deep you plan to dig

Call 811 at least a few days before you start any digging project.

Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional:

When to Notify

If you’re planning a project which requires digging:

  • State Law requires you to notify Washington 811 at least 2 working days in advance of the start of the digging
  • They’ll come to the location you’d like excavated to mark the buried utilities on your property

Whether you plan to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling (800) 424-5555 or 811 before each job.
