Today is August 11 – or 811 Day – and Verizon once again is highlighting the importance of calling 811 prior to any digging project to have underground utility lines marked.

An underground utility line is damaged every six minutes in the US because someone failed to call 811 - the national "Call Before You Dig" phone number - or connect online at www.call811.com before digging, according to Common Ground Alliance, which since 2007 has promoted the 811 number and www.811.com. This can result in disruption of service, property damage, injuries and even deaths.

Striking an underground electric or natural gas pipe can cause serious injury, damages and service interruptions. Utility lines need to be properly marked because even when digging only a few inches, the risk of striking an underground utility line still exists.

Contractors, excavators, landscapers and homeowners must call 811 at least two to 10 working days before the project is due to begin.

Call 811 before you dig.

Aug. 11, 2017: Pennsylvania 811 hopes this date on the calendar - Friday, August 11 - will serve as a natural reminder for residents to dial 8-1-1 prior to any digging project to have underground utility lines marked. The 811 number was established in 2005 by the Federal Communications Commission to provide an easy and free method for protecting underground utility lines.

The ground beneath us is crisscrossed with vital underground utilities. "It really is the only way to know which utilities are buried in your area". "According to the US Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, in 2016, NY had 91,191 miles of natural gas distribution, transmission and gathering pipelines and 1,147 miles of hazardous liquid pipelines", a news release from the PSC says. If the damage results in a unsafe situation, call 9-1-1.

Additional information, including a damage prevention booklet on safe excavating practices and the protection of underground facilities, can be found online at http://newyork-811.com.

Atmos Energy Corporation, headquartered in Dallas, is the country's largest, fully-regulated, natural-gas-only distributor, serving over three million natural gas distribution customers in over 1,400 communities in eight states from the Blue Ridge Mountains in the East to the Rocky Mountains in the West. Atmos Energy also manages company-owned natural gas pipeline and storage assets, including one of the largest intrastate natural gas pipeline systems in Texas. These items may produce a spark that might ignite the gas and cause an explosion. You can report gas leaks anonymously. For National Grid, the number is 1-800-892-2345.
