***************************************

REMEMBER TO CALL BEFORE YOU DIG!!!
The "One Call Law" requires that anyone digging must call 1-800-272-1000 so underground utilities can be marked out. You must wait three (3) business days for your mark out, and not more than ten (10) days before you start your project. Projects can vary from installing a mailbox post to building a house.
Remember, it’s the law!
