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 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.

Please Note:
• 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 for Call Before You Clear information or call 811 for more information.
