Call Before Digging

Call 811 or Texas811 at 1-800-344-8377 before you dig.

  • Call the locator service before you dig, blast, bore, trench, drill, grade, or excavate in any way. The local one-call utility locator service will arrange for marking of underground power lines and other utilities so you can keep your distance. If you can white-line your proposed excavation route, locators can more easily mark the affected utilities.
  • Never rely solely on your utility maps.

Utility maps are not updated often, and the markings may be off. The one-call center has the most current, most accurate information about buried utilities.

Call your one-call utility locator service well ahead of digging, so underground utilities can be marked and you can work safely.

Know what's below. Call before you dig.
