Safety Tips
Pick up the phone before the shovel...
Pick up the phone before you pick up a shovel. In many areas, homes are served by underground electric lines. If you’re digging near an underground cable and cut into a line, not only will you probably interrupt service to your home, but you could also receive a serious shock! One call can start the process to ensure your project will be safely completed. Contact Iowa One Call toll free, dial 811 for information to help you dig safely this spring.
