1 min read


DENVER (KDVR) — As the weather warms up and homeowners start planning to get their gardens ready, experts say there is a critical step that needs to be at the top of everyone’s to-do list. 

“It’s really important anyone who’s going to be digging contacts 811 beforehand,” Whitney Nichols with Colorado 811 said. 

Colorado 811 is a nonprofit that links anyone in Colorado that needs to dig with underground utility owners who can locate lines. 

“When you dial 811, you’ll contact us, we process your request and then we notify the utility companies. They send out professional locators to put paint and flag the ground so when you start digging, you can avoid damaging any underground utility lines,” Nichols said.
