Before You Dig - “Don’t take a chance”
“Save yourself from possible personal injury
or expense by calling before you dig!”
Just because you can’t see a power line doesn’t
mean you don’t have one or more on or near your property or
worksite. Most power lines in residential neighborhoods and urban
areas are installed underground.
No one should ever be electrocuted by a power line.
Always play it safe around electricity. If you plan to do any type
of digging or excavating CALL 1-800-DIG-TESS and request a line
locate. This service is free and will prevent damage to underground
facilities and personal injury.
Texas Excavation Safety System can also be contacted
online at www.digtess.org.
Please call 2 days before you dig. All the underground
facilities at the locate request will be marked, painted, and/or
flagged so you can clearly see the location of the existing facilities
before you dig.
For more information, please feel free to contact
your District Office (District Office
