April is Pennsylvania Safe Digging Month

Call 811 Before You Dig!!   Safe Digging Month is an awareness initiative sponsored by Pennsylvania 811 for the month of April.

Traditionally outdoor projects start in the spring. Call 811 at least 3 business days before you dig so the approximate location of underground utility lines can be identified and marked by facility owners. The call before you dig process helps to prevent injuries, property damage, inconvenient utility outages. Excavators and homeowners are reminded to call 811 at least 3 business days before you dig. A recent survey by the Common Ground Alliance revealed that every 3 minutes an underground line is damaged, and in 2019, the costs of damages to buried utilities in the U.S. was estimated at $30 billion.
