Call Before You Dig
Date posted - April 11, 2016
Northwest Iowa — It’s spring in northwest Iowa, and with spring come the outdoor projects. But if you’re planning improvements around the house that involve digging, Ashton Newman of MidAmerican Energy says you’ll need to call Iowa One-Call at least 48-hours in advance so you avoid disturbing underground utilities.
You might think that a call to Iowa One-Call would only be necessary for a major excavation project. Newman says you’d be wrong.
She says calling Iowa One-Call is important for several reasons.
Newman talks about how to use the Iowa One-Call service.
She says that, since some utilities are buried only a few inches underground, it is important to call EVERY time before you dig. You can reach Iowa One-Call by dialing 8-1-1.
