In the state of Wisconsin we have had a couple of gas mains breached including one that lead to the explosion in Sun Prairie. Just around the corner is August 11th also known as 8/11. Diggers hotline hopes the date will be a reminder to call 811 prior to any digging project to mark underground utility lines. Anybody using a shovel, posthole digger or anything else disturbing soil is required to contact them by dialing 811 or at diggershotline.com. This is a free service that helps protect residents from injury and repair costs that may occur when striking a buried utility line.
