Call before you dig -- underground lines pose danger
Great River Energy urges homeowners to be aware of underground hazards associated with digging when working on outdoor home projects.
Underground power lines can be just as dangerous as overhead power lines, according to Great River Energy. Avoid serious injury and property damage by calling 811 before digging to have underground facilities marked.
Striking an underground facility can lead to personal injury, repair costs, penalties, delays and inconvenient outages.
