National Safe Digging Month

As the weather warms and homeowners start to tackle those DIY outdoor construction projects, the Common Ground Alliance wants to remind people that April is National Safe Digging Month and to call before you dig.

There are millions of miles of buried utility lines under private property that provide facilities essential services such as water, electricity and natural gas. And every six minutes one of those lines is damaged – which can cause service outages, property damage, injuries or death. Prior to starting any project where digging is occurring on your property – including common springtime projects such as installing mailboxes, fences, planting trees or bushes, or installing a new deck or patio – make sure to call 811 three business days before you dig so that your utility lines can be marked to avoid costly or dangerous damage.

Utility companies can also proactively remind people to call 811 as well as mark the location of these lines with Stonehouse Signs’ Custom Underground Utility Marker Signs. Our Custom Signs are manufactured with long-lasting inks and materials, so when installed outdoors, your Utility Markers will remain highly visible and color-bright, helping to protect your lines for years. We also offer a range of other long lasting utility marking products, including (link opens PDF catalog) Underground Tape, Line and Post Markers, and Waterway Markers to help protect your utility lines from digging damage.
