Before You Dig…Get the Scoop… It’s the Law

Everyday throughout Colorado, careless digging causes unnecessary consequences such as serious personal injury, environmental damage, and costly delays.

Before you begin summer landscaping projects in your lawn, make sure you know where you’re digging. Contact the Utility Notification Center of Colorado; locators are allowed two business days to respond to your location, not including the day you call, to accurately mark the facilities in your excavation area.

Then, make sure to respect all markings for water, cable, gas, telephone and electric power lines. Take the time and dig with care.

Contact the Utility Notification Center of Colorado at 1-800-922-1987, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., or visit
