Spring Safety Reminder

Spring weather really is on it’s way! Have you got yard and garden projects that involve digging? Remember to Call Before You Dig.

If you’re planning to dig a hole more than a foot deep, it is YOUR responsibility to call Gopher State One Call (GSOC) at least 48 hours before you dig. GSOC will notify utilities in your area. Utilities will then locate their facilities.

If you have private facilities on your property, such as electric lines from your meter to your house, propane lines, invisible fencing, or sprinklers, you will need to hire someone to locate those. Gopher State One Call has an industry directory of locators for your assistance.

For lots of helpful information about safe digging, visit Gopher State One Call’s website.

You can also request and view the status of your location online: www.gopherstateonecall.org

Call GSOC at 811 or 1-800-252-1166 or visit the website at least 48 hours before you dig. It’s the law!
