April is National Safe Digging Month and Delmarva is reminding customers to dial 811 before digging.
When individuals call 811, they will be routed to an operator who will ask for the location of the digging job. A locator will be sent to mark the location of underground utility lines so you will know what's below and be able to dig safely. For anyone working outdoors, Delmarva Power strongly advises to avoid overhead utility lines when carrying long or tall items, such as ladders, scaffolding, tree saws and pool cleaning equipment, by holding them parallel to the ground.
