National Safe Digging Month is here, and Atmos Energy invites you to help us share this important safety information! National Safe Digging Month is observed in April to remind everyone – homeowners and professional excavators alike – to keep communities safe by always calling 811 before any digging or excavation project.
Digging without knowing the approximate location of underground utilities can result in disruptions to critical services, serious injuries, and costly repairs to underground utility lines. It is simple and easy to make a free request online or by calling 811 to have underground utility-owned lines located and marked. This helps communities maintain essential utility services and keep everyone safe by reducing the likelihood of accidentally digging into buried utility lines.
