Electric power lines are often buried underground. Please call Indiana Underground Plant Protection Service (IUPPS) at (800)382-5544 or 811 at least two working days before the start of the actual excavation. It is the member's responsibility to notify IUPPS of any digging, whether it is a major excavation project or a simple project such as installing a fence or mailbox. If IUPPS is not notified and damage is done to the underground lines, it will be the member's responsibility to pay for the cost of the repairs. A simple call to IUPPS could save you costly damages and possibly end your life. For more information visit the IUPPS website.
