Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is using National Safe Digging Month (April) to encourage California residents and businesses to continue to lead by example and always call 811 before any digging project. It is a fast, free service that ensures you know what’s below ground before you dig.
Homeowners and contractors will help protect the safety of their communities’ and can prevent outages with a simple call to 811. In California, contractors are required to provide notification of their intent to dig two working days in advance. Failing to do so can result in costly fines and delayed projects.
