Atmos Energy Joins 811 Day campaign
With Saturday almost here, Atmos Energy Corp. would like this date, 8/11, to serve as a reminder to residents to call 811 before digging on any project so underground utility lines can be safely marked and avoided.
A recent report found an underground utility line is damaged during digging projects every three minutes nationwide.
“The 811 program is provided at no charge, and it can save you time and money as well as prevent threats to life and property,” said Dave Good, Atmos Energy’s Colorado vice president of operations, in a news release.
By calling 811, homeowners and contractors are connected to their local one-call center, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig.
Professional locators are then sent to the digging site to mark the locations of underground utility lines with flags, spray paint or both.
