National Safe Digging Month
"The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) recognizes April as National Safe Digging Month.
Before any digging or excavation project, please follow these important safety steps:
Call 8-1-1 at least 48-72 hours before any digging project.
Be sure to wait for desired locations to be marked before digging.
Once the excavation or digging site has been clearly marked, proceed to dig with caution to avoid injury or exposure to hazardous materials.
Thank you for participating in the Voluntary Protection Program."
