New National Three-Digit “Call Before You Dig” Number

Tuesday, May 1, 2007, was the official activation of 811 of a public education campaign about this new national “Call Before You Dig” number, designated by the FCC to protect American homeowners and professional excavators from the injuries, expenses and penalties caused by the hundreds of thousands of digging related accidents that result in damages to underground utilities each year. 

Failure to call before digging threatens American lives and underground utility infrastructure — resulting in nearly 700,000 underground utility damages each year.  This staggering statistic equates to more than one unintentional hit per minute, the consequences of which include injury, penalties, repair costs and expensive and inconvenient service outages.
