Join a PG&E 811 Safe Digging Webinar


April is National Safe Digging Month, and to help customers “dig safe,” PG&E is hosting two 811 Safe Digging Webinars. Join one of these sessions to learn about the importance of calling 811 before any digging project, no matter how large or small, and to learn how to dig safely once any underground utility lines are marked for your project site. There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions as part of the session.

Avoid digging into underground pipelines


Safety is our highest priority at PG&E. To ensure that you remain safe when doing any digging projects, always call 811 first. 811 is a free service managed by Underground Service Alert and available to everyone. After you call, Underground Service Alert will contact PG&E and other companies that have underground lines in your area. Representatives will then mark the location of their underground lines so you can avoid them and dig safely. Whether you are planting a tree or a garden, or digging holes for fence posts, call 811 at least two business days before you plan to start your project. For more information visit California 811.
