Call 811 Before you Dig
It's Free! It's Easy! It's the Law!
Find out where underground utility lines are buried BEFORE you dig! Anyone planning to dig in Tennessee MUST call 811 BEFORE your work begins. You will need to provide information about the work site when you call 811.
PES reminds everyone that whether your project is a small landscaping update, a large renovation or a new construction project, one of the worst mistakes is not identifying exactly where lines are buried on the property! And, there may be more buried than you realize. Avoid the costly and potentially dangerous mistakes associated with accidentally unearthing your underground power, gas, cable, phone and water lines. You may also have irrigation water lines or even long buried electrical fencing conduits. 811 can help you locate these lines and avoid cutting through them or accidentally unearthing them.
