Did you know?
You must always call 811 before you dig.  It's the law...and can cost you $500.00 per violation!

Did you know that anyone (homeowner, contractor, etc.) who is performing any project that disturbs the ground in any way MUST get a ticket by calling 811 BEFORE starting the project? Many projects are include in the law, such as installing a new mailbox, having trees cut down, grinding or removing stumps, installing a decorative pond, etc....digging for any reason...there are many, many more types of projects that would cause you to be required to call 811 before getting started.

This law includes both PRIVATE PROPERTY and property in the public right of way.  You're probably asking, "why?"  This is because the lines that are in the public right-of-way (gas, water, sewer, electrical, telephone, cable, etc.) also extend onto privately owned property to provide service to the structures on the property. Not only can digging cause damage to the utility lines, it could also cause injury or death. 

Plan are required to call 2 full business days before starting your ground disturbing project, and you are required to have the ticket on hand.  This is just a tidbit of information you need to know about the Sunshine811 law.  For more information, call them by dialing 811 or visiting the official website at
