April is National Dig Safe Month

Apr 02, 2013 -- 10:35am

The Delaware Public Service Commission is once again calling on homeowners and professional contractors to call before they start a digging project.

This month is National Dig Safe Month. Homeowners and contractors alike are required by law to call “Miss Utility” at 811, and follow other guidelines to ensure that they’re digging safely. As the weather is warming up, the PSC is taking the opportunity to remind everyone about the importance of following the state’s safe digging guidelines. Digging without knowing the location of underground utilities can cause serious injuries and disruptions in service. Violators of the 811 law will be held responsible for paying for repairs to damaged lines.
