Call Before You Dig

Always call 811 before you start any digging project! You’ll avoid injury, expense, embarrassment – and a very inconvenient day in the dark. Locate requests are accepted 24 hours, seven days a week.

Dial 811 a few days prior to digging, and your call will be routed to your local One Call Center. Tell the operator where you’re planning to dig, what type of work you will be doing, and who your local utility is (Northern Wasco PUD, NW Natural, cable companies, etc.).

In a few days, they’ll send a locator to mark the approximate location of your underground lines, pipes, and cables, so you’ll know what’s below — and be able to dig safely.
