After the Storm
Safety Is The Top Priority for Everyone
As storm debris collection begins, it is important for all utilities, both underground and overhead, to be identified in order to prevent personal injury. If digging is required for installation of temporary poles for electrical needs or any other digging occurs, please remember to call 811 "Call Before You Dig" to prevent serious injury when digging near underground utility lines.
If you suspect damage of any kind to underground lines, please contact your local utility. If there is damage to a gas line or dangerous/hazardous lines, please call 911.
A gas leak could be occurring if you smell the distinctive natural gas odor, hear a hissing or whistling sound near a gas line, or see dead vegetation or bubbles near a gas line. If this occurs, vacate the area immediately and call 911.
Please remember that underground utility line depth varies, and there may be multiple utility lines in one common area. The risk of striking an underground utility line exists even when digging only a few inches. Therefore, please make sure that the location of any and all underground utility lines is identified before digging.
