Call Before You Dig

811 logo, "Know what's below. Call before you dig."Dial 811 or (800) 424-5555.

Digging may seem like no big deal, but regardless of where you live or conduct your business, the gas, electric, cable, water, and sewer lines that serve you, may very likely be underground. It doesn’t matter how deep you plan to dig, we urge you to call 811 first because hidden dangers could be just beneath the surface.

If you’re planning a project that requires digging, state law requires you to notify Montana 811 at least three working days in advance. They’ll come to the location that you’d like excavated to mark the buried utilities on your property. Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling before each job.
