It is state law that you must place dig notification prior to starting any work that involves digging. This is to ensure that you do not damage any underground utility lines. The call must be placed not more than 10 days prior to digging and there is a 3 business day waiting period for the utility lines to be marked.
Please call 1 (800) 242-1776 or 811 or visit www.paonecall.org
If you do not place a PA 1 call you will be liable for all costs incurred if you damage any gas, water, electric, cable lines, etc.
