Beneath the surface of the ground, hidden from view, are gas lines, water lines, cable lines, and other utilities. If you don’t know exactly where they are, your digging could cause disruption to services, harm to the general public, injuries, or even an explosion. By using direct.digalert.org, you begin the process of notifying DigAlert members who own underground utilities and have requested notification within the area of your planned excavation.
If you are undergoing work on your property that could affect utility infrastructure, make sure that you are in compliance with the City, in contact with utility providers, and in communication with neighbors who may be affected by the work. DigAlert is one resource that can help facilitate the communication necessary to prevent an accident.
