Call 811 Before You Dig so You Don’t Have to Call 911 Later

Springtime projects like building a deck, planting a tree or replacing your mailbox can be dangerous if you don’t know what's below before you start digging. Underground utilities like natural gas lines can run inches from the surface and be ruptured with a shovel or other household tools. Be sure you call 811 at least two business days before you start digging. It's the law in Minnesota. ​
