Know What's Below: Call 811 Before You Dig

What’s the most important step when installing a new fence, placing a mailbox, or planting a tree? Calling 811 at least two business days before you dig!

Underground utilities such as water, sewer, electricity, gas, and communications all have pipelines or conduits buried under the ground. Digging without knowing their location can lead to service disruptions, serious injuries, and costly repairs.

Call 811 or visit to request “locates” for these utilities. Each utility will send out a technician to mark where their utilities are located in relation to your project area.

Please note: the Water District locates the water line from the water main to the meter. We do not mark the service line from the meter to your home. For more information about locating, please call our office or visit
