Call Before You Dig 8-1-1
Whenever you decide to dig in your yard, the very first step you need to take is to call the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS). It's dangerous to dig without knowing where your electric underground lines, phone lines, water lines, etc. are located. It could be dangerous for you to dig without first calling OUPS. Please call OUPS at least 48 hours before you are planning to dig. The appropriate person will mark your utilities with either paint or flags. That way, you can be safe when you dig.
Call OUPS at 800-362-2764 or 8-1-1 anytime. For more information, go to www.oups.org.
