Call 811 Before You Dig!

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

ASHEVILLE NC – If you are planning an outdoor improvement project, safety starts before the shovel hits the dirt. The City of Asheville is participating in Safe Digging Month, encouraging everyone to call 811 before they dig.

Underground utility lines can be anywhere and accidentally running into one while digging could result in service outages, fines or even injury. Simply call 811 and technicians will mark underground utilities like water, sewer, power or phone lines for free before you even break ground.

The City of Asheville Water Resources Department participates alongside many other utility providers in the area as part of the North Carolina 811 One Call service to locate and mark underground utility lines on your property so you don’t have to dig in the dark.
