Gasline Pipe Safety - Know what's below - Call before you dig!

In Pennsylvania homeowners and contractors are required to contact PA One Call, by dialing 8-1-1 at least three business days before beginning any digging or excavation project.  When PA One Call receives a call, it will alert the appropriate underground facility owners of the intent to dig. The underground facility owners will identify any underground lines or facilities at the work site.  In 2006, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission ordered all local telecommunications exchange carries and other carriers with switching capabilities – including payphone providers – in Pennsylvania to fully implement 8-1-1 as the abbreviated dialing code to access PA One Call.
