Did you know
that New Jersey law requires you to notify your local utility company
anytime you dig into the ground? In the past year, more and more residents
are finding out the hard way that simply installing a mailbox or planting
a tree can be a dangerous and costly endeavor. What you don't see can
cost you your life. Buried beneath our streets, yards and sidewalks
are countless utilities that bring us water, natural gas, television
signals, electricity and carry away our waste.
Digging into one of these
lines often causes disruption of service to you or your neighbors, but
more importantly, it can kill you.
To combat the possibility
of these unintentional mishaps, there is an all-inclusive source to
help you locate interferences and dig safely.
The NJ One Call service takes
care of making calls to all of the possible services that may be buried
near your dig site. The number to this FREE service is 1-800-272-1000.
Calling before you dig can
save your life.
