IF IT CALLS FOR DIGGING, IT CALLS FOR 811
Planning a home improvement project that involves digging? Installing a new fence or mailbox? Are you finally starting that garden you’ve been dreaming of? It is the law to contact 811 two full working days, or more depending on the size and scope of the project, to avoid hitting an underground utility line and allow the member utilities to provide a positive response to your locate request. Working day means every day, except Saturday, Sunday, and holidays established by federal or state statute from 12:01 a.m. eastern time until 12 midnight eastern time, excluding the day the locate request was made.
By using Kentucky 811’s free service and having the approximate location of our members’ buried utility lines marked on your property, you can prevent damage to your property, your neighborhood and yourself.
