What do we do?
We are the "Call before you dig!" company for all of Pennsylvania. If you plan to disturb the earth with powered equipment, you are required by Pennsylvania law to notify the underground utility companies of your intent to do so. Notification occurs by calling 8-1-1 or 1-800-242-1776, 24 hours of the day, every day of the year. Notification can also be done on our website at www.paonecall.org.
We will then notify the utility companies nearby of your intent to dig. The utility companies are responsible to mark where their underground lines are located with colored flags, paint or chalk.
• PA One Call does not mark utility lines.
• In some cases, the utility company may not mark the service lines you own.
• If you need your sewer drain cleared be sure to check www.paonecall.org/crossbore for Call Before You Clear information or call 811 for more information.
Why should you call?

Dial 8-1-1 or 1-800-242-1776 before you dig. The utility companies do not want an accident, either. The best way to learn where underground utility lines are located is to call before you dig.

Homeowner Quick Tips

• Do not remove the flags if you see them in your yard.
• Our service is no cost to homeowners.
• Did you hire someone to install your fence, deck or new patio? Ask to see the PA One Call serial number before allowing them to dig on your property.
The Excavator’s Responsibility
• Dial 8-1-1 or 1-800-242-1776.
• Do not allow anyone to excavate on your property without calling.
• Always look for the markings on the ground before your dig date.
• If you do not see markings, do not allow anyone to dig. Wait for the lines to be marked by the utility.
• Whoever places the call will receive an email or fax with a list of facility owners who have marked or have not marked. Pay attention to this message.
