Call Before You Dig

If you are thinking of starting a spring garden or any landscaping projects that will require digging, please remember to call 811 before you dig in order to have underground utilities marked.

Call 811 at least three business days before you plan to begin your digging project.  811 will send out locators to mark your underground lines for FREE.  NC 811 locates lines for Wake Electric.  NC 811 will be happy to assist you with the process.

So remember, call 811 or 1-800-632-4949 three business days before you plan on digging.

By calling 811 before every project, residents can help save lives, avoid costly penalties from hitting underground lines and protect infrastructure. It’s important to know what’s below ground to prevent a potentially life-threatening mistake.
