It’s that time of year when Peoples Gas gives you this reminder -Florida law says excavators MUST call 811 to get underground utility lines marked at a dig site prior to digging. This applies to everyone, whether homeowners or professional excavators.

Digging can include installing a birdhouse on a pole, planting trees or shrubs, putting in new fencing or a swimming pool. You name it, if there’s digging involved, calling 811 applies!

It’s simple, free and easy. Check out our previous 811 blog for more information,visit our website or sunshine811 for details.
