Call Before Digging
Call 811 or Mississippi811 at 1-800-227-6477 before you
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.
