In the Las Vegas area, just one easy phone call to 811 gets the approximate location of underground utility lines marked for free.
811 is the FCC-designated national number to call to get underground lines marked, which is the first step in any digging project.
When to call
Every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees and shrubs. Call 811 at least two days before you dig.
The depth of utility lines varies, and there may be multiple utility lines in a common area. Digging without calling can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, harm you and those around you, and potentially result in fines and repair costs.
One Call Center
When you call 811 from anywhere in the country, an operator will ask for the location of your digging job and then send a notification to each of the local utility companies. The utilities will send a professional locator to your property to mark their location lines.
