Call Before You Dig

Before you dig make sure you contact the Georgia Utility Protection Center. It is a requirement by law that everyone must contact Georgia 881 by dialing 811 or 800-282-7411 at a minimum of 48 hours before beginning any mechanized digging on your property. This is for the protection of our utility infrastructure and the safety of everyone.
