Call Before You Dig This Spring to Avoid Damaging Utility Lines

Every digging job requires a call to 811 to have underground utility lines marked. In some cases, lines are buried close to the surface and could easily be damaged by even shallow digging, resulting in service interruptions to your neighborhood.

When you call 811, simply tell the operator where you're planning to dig and what type of work you'll be doing. The affected local utilities will send a locator to your property, free of charge. Then you'll know what's below and be able to dig safely. You can also submit an online form here to request a locate team visit.

As one of your local service providers, DirectLink thanks you in advance for your cooperation!
