Call 811 before digging

Wednesday, August 10, 2022 by Nina Hernandez

This week, Texas Gas Service is promoting public awareness of the 811 line, which is the number excavators and homeowners should call 48 hours before doing any digging on their property in order to avoid damaging underground pipelines. Once the ticket is submitted, a crew will be dispatched to mark underground utility lines within the designated project area with flags in a 48-hour time frame. Learn more about the Be a Dig Hero campaign here, pledge to call 811 before you dig and get a chance to win a $100 gift card. (There are also coloring pages available to print for young diggers.)
