April is recognized as National Safe Digging Month. We want to remind everyone to exercise caution with any digging project by placing a call to 811 or requesting a utility location through IowaOneCall.com. Calling 811 is not just a good idea – it’s the law.
Did You Know...The majority of ICN’s fiber optic infrastructure is located underground (approximate 3400 miles of owned fiber and leased connections making up the rest of the network). If an underground utility line is hit while digging, it can cause serious injuries, disrupt service to our healthcare, government, and education users, and potentially result in fines and repair costs.
It may be easier than you think to hit a buried line when digging. That’s why every digging project, no matter how large or small, warrants a call to 811. The depth of the utility lines can vary due to erosion, previous digging projects and uneven surfaces. Utility lines must be properly marked because even digging only a few inches carries the risk of damage.
Contact Iowa One Call at 811 a minimum of two days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and legal holidays) before excavation begins.
After Iowa One Call is contacted, the following will happen.
