April Showers Bring Swells of Projects to The Greater Northeast:
Did You Remember to Call 811 Before Excavating?
As the ground begins to soften with warmer weather and April showers, the construction world swells with projects and in the Deep Foundation world, this undoubtedly includes DIGGING!
April is National Safe Digging Month, it reminds us all, contractors and homeowners alike, to call 811 or complete an online ticket before you dig.
Did you know:
National Safe Digging Month began in 2008 to encourage all Common Ground Alliance members to promote safe digging when outdoor projects are starting to take off with the warmer weather.
The process not only saves lives but it saves communities and companies thousands of dollars in damages and repairs. Digging without knowing what utilities are underground can damage natural gas pipelines, electric lines, phone and internet, water and sewerage lines. Damaging these lines can result in weeks of delays for the project and disruptions to entire communities, not to mention the possibility of injuries to the crew or bystanders. Whether planning to build a new deck, plant trees and bushes or putting a new swimming pool in you need to call or click at least 72 hours before the start of the project.
This is offered as a free service to homeowners, contractors, excavators and anyone who’s projects require them to dig. Calling 811 or using the state’s online ticket system before digging is actually a federal law and failing to call could result in fines up to $10,000 and the cost of any repairs and damages.
So, remember dial 811 before you dig – you could be saving yourself from a major headache or worse!
