Building a deck? Planting a tree? Installing a mailbox? Then you need to contact Indiana 811 either through its website at 811Now.com or by calling 811. Every digging job requires contacting 811 – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can harm yourself or those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs.
