Call 811 to detect all buried utility lines before excavation
Atmos Energy reminds homeowners and excavators that they are required by law to call 811 to have all buried utility lines located and marked before digging.
Since 2008, Atmos Energy has seen a 36-percent increase in requests by the public to have underground natural gas lines marked. Once underground utility lines are marked, it is important to take special care around all line markings by digging by hand.
“The greatest risk to our natural gas pipelines is accidental damage while digging,” said Gary Gregory, president of Atmos Energy’s Colorado division, in a news release. “Even minor damage, such as a scrape, dent or crease in a pipeline or its coating, can cause a leak.”
Every time the excavating public calls 811 before digging, the chances of hitting an underground utility line decreases by 99.9 percent.
When calling 811, homeowners and contractors are connected to their local one-call center, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig. Professional locators are then sent to the digging site to mark the location of underground, utility-owned lines with flags and spray paint, free of charge.
Atmos Energy located 1.5 million underground natural gas lines in 2015.
“We appreciate our customers observing this important safety law,” Gregory said. “Calling 811 is the law in every state that we serve. All excavators should call 811 at least three business days before digging on public or private property.”
