Safety is our number one priority at PGW – which is why we encourage everyone to call 811 before you dig. A call to 811 should be your first step, whether the project is as simple as planting a new garden, or adding an addition to your home.

By calling 811, homeowners and building professionals help avoid damaging vital underground utility lines. Calling before you begin any underground digging projects isn’t just a good idea, it’s the law.
