After dealing with Polar Vortexes and a winter’s worth of snow, most South Dakotans are planning for Spring. Whether you’re planting crops or a flower garden, repairing a fence or plowing a field, plans for the upcoming season are underway. There’s a very important part to all of these plans that you don’t want to overlook – call South Dakota 811 at least two business days before you plan to put a shovel into the ground.
A quick phone call or simple online form is all it takes to make your request to have your underground utility lines marked. Once your lines have been marked, you know where you can dig safely.
Remember, you can speak with a live agent by dialing 811. If you prefer, simply enter your requests online. Homeowners can click HERE to reach the Homeowner Portal. Professional excavators can request locates online HERE.
Until next week and throughout the Spring, safe digging.
