Always Call or Click Before You Dig.
It’s Easy. It’s Free. And, it’s the Law!
Safe Digging is No Accident. Electric, Gas, Water, Sewer, Telephone and Cable lines are buried everywhere and some are only an inch or two below the ground's surface. A job as small as planting a tree or installing a mailbox or fence can damage underground facilities. By notifying Missouri One Call, you will be able to place a locate request to notify the utilities of when and where you plan to dig
By law, you are required to make your locate request 3 working days before you plan to dig. Week-ends, State and Federal Holidays do not count toward the 3 working days.
Safe digging is everyone’s responsibility. It’s a free service to notify Missouri One Call of your planned excavation to help prevent damages that may result in fines, utility service interruption and injury or even death.
