Governor Mike Pence recently signed a proclamation declaring April 2016 as Safe Digging Month across Indiana. This month is dedicated to increasing awareness of safe digging practices and reminding homeowners and professionals when to contact 811. Nationwide, underground utility lines are damaged every six minutes because someone didn’t contact 811. By law, digging projects must begin with contacting Indiana 811. Hoosiers should make the call to 811 or visit www.811now.com at least two full working days prior to beginning a digging project.
