Call 811 before you dig!

I attended a presentation by a representative from PG&E in Sacramento earlier this week, and among other things he emphasized the importance of calling 811 before doing any digging or landscaping so that utility providers can visit your home and mark the locations of underground utility lines. Gas lines, water lines, electric lines, communication lines among other things are buried underground. PG&E frequently receives emergency calls when homeowners are digging and unexpectedly hit gas lines. Breaking a gas line can be very dangerous since gas is highly flammable and easily ignited. Be careful!
