Preparedness Resources

IT'S JUST DIRT, RIGHT????

1. Stay safe! Before undertaking any digging projects, please contact 8-1-1 at least two working days prior to your excavation to have underground utility lines marked for free.  

 2. Damaging a gas pipeline or electric line can be dangerous and may result in serious injury, heavy fines or project delays. To prevent damage, always contact 8-1-1 before you dig – or you can create a ticket at Digalert.org. 

3. Planting trees or digging for another project? Contact 8-1-1 to protect your safety and avoid costly repairs. SDG&E will mark underground utility lines at no cost. 

4. Find out what’s below before you dig. Gas pipelines and electric lines can be located anywhere – under streets, sidewalks or even your yard. If you plan to plant trees or install that new mailbox or fence, it’s important to know if there are any such lines that run underground in the area you are planning to dig. Doing so will help prevent damage, service interruption or worse. Learn more at sdge.com/811 or contact 8-1-1. #sdge #SDGEassist
