Alabama State Law requires that anyone engaging in excavation activities notify underground utility owners to the start of excavation so they can locate their utilities. This includes planting a tree or installing a mailbox. Call 811 for the Alabama “Know Before You Dig” program. Click here for more information on requesting underground line locations.
See the designated Color Code for Utility Line Location Markings below. These may be placed in the street or your yard to identify underground utility lines.
