Call 811 Before You Dig-It's the Law!

Practice Safe Digging with Pennsylvania One Call—811

Always call 811 before doing excavations of any kind so utility lines can be marked on your site. 

Digging without having utility lines marked jeopardizes the safety of excavators and can lead to a complete disruption in facilities, including gas, telephone and cable services. Plus, it is against the law.

With your ongoing cooperation and participation in the “Call 811” program, the pipeline industry has been able to decrease excavation damages for all underground facilities by 50% in less than a decade.

Help us make one of the safest energy transportation infrastructures in the world even safer. Call 811 or (800) 242-1776 if you’re calling from a number outside Pennsylvania.

Make the Switch to Cleaner, Safer Natural Gas

Running a business comes with a lot of responsibilities: toward clients, employees and the institutions that help your company function and expand.

Switching to clean, safe, reliable and affordable natural gas to meet your company’s energy demands is one responsible, smart decision you can make to reduce costs, improve the comfort of your staff, support energy efficiency in your community and show your concern for the health of your environment.

America’s 2.4 million miles of gas pipeline, servicing 177 million Americans, is growing all the time, creating jobs, stimulating the economy, diminishing reliance of foreign oil, reducing greenhouse emissions, promoting technological advancements, providing affordable prices and projecting stable costs for the upcoming decade-plus.
