Calling All Do-It-Yourselfers

Call before you Dig

Summer is officially here! It’s time to get outside and catch up on all the Do-It-Yourself jobs that have been nagging all winter long. That underground sprinkler system isn’t going to install itself; not to mention that those late night barbeques would be so much better with a new backyard deck! How about replacing that culvert? It’s been on the “To-Do” list long enough 🙂

Before you step on the back of that shovel, or line up a contractor to start the excavation, there is one thing you should know: In today’s modern living, many of the utilities to service our homes and businesses are now installed underground. Water, sewer, natural gas, power, telephone, cable TV, and fiber optic lines are just to name a few. And here’s the catch – You have a legal and financial responsibility for any damage caused to those underground utilities. Ouch, that sounds expensive!

But wait! There is a better solution! Doesn’t it make better sense to know where your underground utilities are before you start to dig? In fact, you can get all underground utilities professionally located with one quick and simple phone call! Plus, it’s FREE! Idaho’s state wide line-locate service known as “Digline” is the answer.  It’s super easy to use. Simply call 811.

Got questions? How deep are my lines buried? How long does it take to get lines located? Check out for more information.

It’s time for those Do-It-Yourself jobs to get d-o-n-e….without the hassle of unexpected repairs or expenses! So do yourself a favor: Be in the “know”– and call before you dig!
