Atlantic City Electric : April is National Safe Digging Month

Atlantic City Electric asks residential customers the following:

"Stay Safe, Dig Smart. Know what’s below before you dig call 811


April is National Safe Digging Month and staying away from underground utility lines is as easy as 8-1-1. That is the underground utility locating service number to call before you put a shovel into the ground.  Installing a mailbox, building a deck, planting a tree and laying a patio are all examples of digging projects where a call to 811 should be one of the first steps you take.  Calling 811 before you dig will prevent damage to underground electric and gas lines and keep you, your family and neighbors safe.  By law, the underground utility locating service must be called at least two days in advance of any work you plan to do.

“The underground utility locating service is free, and simply calling 8-1-1 will bring someone to your home or business to mark all underground utilities so you will be able to dig safely,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. “Calling 8-1-1 before digging will help you avoid fines and disgruntled neighbors if a hit line cuts off electric or gas service. But, more importantly, knowing where it’s safe to dig will avoid an accident that could result in injury or death.”
