In an effort to help our customers understand Texas law regarding the Pipeline Damage Prevention Program and digging requirements we have gathered some information on the subject. If you are planning to do any type of digging always call 811 BEFORE you dig.
CALL 8-1-1 before you dig so underground utilities can be marked. REFRESH when necessary.
WAIT 48 hours, excluding weekends and legal holidays, to give the locator time to mark the underground utilities.
VERIFY positive response has been received -- visually confirm area is marked or an all-clear is given.
SURVEY the job site for evidence of unmarked lines, such as water meters or flush valves.
Dig with CARE.
