Before You Dig
Protect yourselves and your property against all underground utility damage and liability (not just city utilities such as water and wastewater pipes).
Call 811 before you dig to find out where the underground utility lines might be buried. The service is free and it's the law. Go to DigSafelyOregon to find out more.
