Call 811 Before You Dig

Before starting any home improvement projects that involve digging, be sure to contact an underground line locating service to find out if there are any buried lines or cables in the area.  By calling 811, you can avoid potentially hazardous situations such as causing an explosion by cutting a gas line or causing a wide spread power outage by slicing through an electric line when digging!
This service contacts all local utilities that might have underground lines running through the area that you are planning to dig.
