Don’t Kill My Fibe | Call Before You Dig

Internet connectivity is more important than ever these days, so don’t be the neighbor who causes a lost connection for the whole neighborhood by calling  811 – Alaska Digline – for a free utility locate before you dig for those home and yard projects this summer!

Call or request utility locates online two business days prior to digging. Your utility service lines, including gas, electric, telephone, and cable, will be marked so that you will know where you can dig safely.

Locates are not exact and do not guarantee the location or depth of lines, so always hand-dig within two feet of any marked lines.

Prevent injuries and avoid damage to utilities, expensive fines, and repair costs by following the proper procedures.  If you accidentally damage a line, report it immediately.
