National 811 Day
National 811 Day is August 11.
8-1-1 or 1-800-DIG-RITE is the number to call for FREE from (coast to coast) to get underground utilities marked. August 11 is a reminder for everyone to Know What’s Below before beginning any projects that involve digging.
In Missouri, the law requires you to dial 811 or contact www.mo1call.com at least two-business days before any digging project, whether it’s big or small. Utility companies will send someone to your home or worksite to mark (with paint and/or flags) where the underground utilities are so you can safely dig without damaging a utility.
