PG&E Has A New Tool To Help You Dig Safely 

April is National Safe Digging Month and PG&E has a new and convenient tool to help you dig safely. It’s called 811express.com and customers, excavators and contractors are urged to take just one minute and use the online service on desktop, mobile phone or tablet at least two days prior to excavation. Utilities will be dispatched to the site to mark underground utility lines so that unsafe digging threatening gas and underground services can be avoided. Customers and excavators can still make a free call to 811 to request underground utility markings. The two-day business requirement applies. Contractors are required by law to contact 811 at least two working days prior to excavation, but any digging project should prompt a request for a USA ticket, including planting a tree in the yard or setting posts for a picket fence. In addition to creating a possible safety hazard, failing to contact 811 may result in costly fines and project delays.
