Always Dial 8-1-1 Before You Dig in Alaska.
April is National Safe Digging Month and the RCA Consumer
Protection & Information Section would like Alaskans to remember
the importance of digging with C.A.R.E.
Call 8-1-1 before you dig
Allow required time for marking
Respect and protect the marks
It is the homeowner or contractor’s responsibility to call 8-1-1 at
least two (2) business days in most areas, ten (10) business days in
remote areas, before beginning any digging or excavation project at
your home or construction site. When calling 8-1-1, tell the operator
what type of work you will be doing, and your local utility companies
will be notified about your intent to dig. A locator will be sent to
your work site to mark the approximate location of the underground
lines, pipes, and cables, so you or your contractor will know what is
below and can dig safely.
