GASTONIA, N.C. (May 3, 2019) -- Digging into a marked utility line is avoidable, and Dominion Energy is reminding the public and contractors to prevent incidents such as the gas dig-in that occurred in Davidson on May 2. Excavators and homeowners should call 811 before digging, respect the markings once utility lines are located and take advantage of free educational opportunities to learn more about safe digging practices.
“Calling 811 is the law in North Carolina and the first step in avoiding utility line damage, but it doesn’t stop there,” said Scott Swindler, General Manager of construction, operations and maintenance for Dominion Energy. “Excavators must dig carefully as well. We encourage contractors that work around utility infrastructure regularly to learn more about what they can do to help us all work safely together and prevent related injuries, traffic disruptions, repair costs and fines.”
To dig safely, Dominion Energy reminds the public and excavators of the following safe digging practices
