Dig Safely this Spring and Summer
by Carin Kirkegaard
Springtime gets gardeners out and digging. One important thing to remember before starting any landscaping projects is to locate the water, cable, gas, telephone, and electric power lines that are underground. Careless digging could cause unnecessary consequences such as serious personal injury, environmental damage and costly delays.
Before beginning spring and summer landscaping projects contact the Utility Notification Center of Colorado. Locators are allowed two business days to respond to accurately mark the underground lines in an excavation area.
Once these areas have been marked, make sure to respect all markings. 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 www.uncc2.org.
