Virginia811 Issuing Reminder To Residents

(Richmond)-  Virginians are being reminded to call Virginia811 before you dig.  As many people are working on outdoor projects, they are being told to reach out before they possibly damage an underground utility line.  When you call 811, you are connected to a local call center that contacts utility companies of your intent to dig.  Officials say that people can strike a line and cause an injury, unnecessary repair costs, power outages and more when they don’t know what’s underground.  You can also contact Virginia 811 to get your property marked.
