Spring is in the air…and so are home projects! April marks the beginning of the peak period for outdoor digging projects in Georgia. Be sure to contact 811 at least three business days before any digging project to ensure you are clear of any buried fiber optic cable in your area.
Projects include but are not limited to:
• Putting in a fence
• Planting trees or shrubbery
• Installing a sprinkler system

• Grading, boring or trenching
Failure to contact Georgia 811 can result in disrupted service to an entire neighborhood and you could potentially incur fines and repair costs. Before you dig, please take the necessary precautions. To submit an eRequest, visit myGeorgia811 | Georgia 811.
