MNOPS joins runners to stress importance of calling 811 before you dig

A woman with a dog visits the Office of Pipeline Safety booth at the 811 5K Run/Walk.It's difficult for most of us to truly understand just how much of our daily infrastructure lives underground. Think of it as a complex web of communication lines that connect us and utilities that fuel us.

That's why our MNOPS staff joined a crowd of runners at the 811 5K Run/Walk in Minneapolis. The run aims to remind people of the importance of calling 811 or filing an online ticket before you dig, as well as raise money for the Twin Cities Firefighters Operation Warm, a non-profit organization that provides new, warm winter coats for Minnesota children in need.
