Call 811 before you dig and mark the locate area with white paint
Avoid contact with underground power lines by getting help locating electrical lines before you start shoveling or excavating. Mark the locate area with white paint and then call 811 to dispatch a locate crew. The service call is free!
A backhoe mistake can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, harm you and those around you, and can potentially result in hefty fines and repair costs. Call before you dig.

Never dig near a pad-mounted transformer. They are surrounded by underground cables. Hitting the cable could result in electrical shock or disruption of services.
Always call 811 before you dig.
