Call Before You Dig

DIAL “811” Before doing any digging.

Indiana law requires all utilities with underground facilities to belong to the Indiana Underground Plant Protection Service. In accordance with that law, Fulton County REMC is now a member of IUPPS. Indiana’s “Call Before You Dig” law (IC 8-1-26) requires everyone that digs to contact Indiana 811 at least two full working days before starting their project. Anyone who digs should contact Indiana 811 first, whether it is to plant a tree, put in a new fence or children’s play set, or dig for any other reason.
