Anytime you plan to excavate whether planting trees, building a deck or installing a mailbox - you must call the ND One-Call number at least 48 hours before you dig. Just dial 811 - it's free.
One Call will arrange for the location of all utility owned underground facilities that may have an impact on your project. You may be held liable for damage to underground facilities if you do not call before you dig!
Protect yourselves and your property against underground utility damage and liability. Find out where the underground utility lines might be buried before you dig.
