The safest and only way to dig is to know what's below ground before your shovel or equipment moves any dirt. Even small projects like planting a shrub require you to make advance arrangements before digging. Your advance call to 811 helps you learn where utility-owned lines and equipment are buried before you turn the earth.
Your call to 811 connects you with your state’s “one-call center,” which arranges, at no cost to you, for utilities like us to locate and mark our buried utilities in your yard. We will send a professional to locate underground natural gas and electric lines with colored flags, paint or stakes. Please note that Xcel Energy is not able to locate lines that a customer has installed and owns, such as a natural gas or electric line that provides fuel or power to an outdoor grill, lighting, etc.
