This April marks the 10th Annual National Safe Digging Month!

Remember to always call 811 before any digging project as striking a single line can cause serious injury, repair costs, fines and inconvenient outages!
 
Every digging project, no matter how large or small, warrants a call to 811. When calling 811, homeowners and contractors are automatically connected to the local one call center, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig.

Employing vacuum excavation versus hand tools would reduce

almost 45,000 known damages a year – over 100 damages a day!

Vacuum excavation, such as hydro excavation, is a growing technology utilized to prevent job-site damages throughout the world.
 
This technology continues to grow in use due to the proven success in preventing costly and sometimes catastrophic damage to underground utilities by being a non-mechanical method to excavate.

The Common Ground Alliance (CGA) tracks and publishes a report every year on underground damages, facility type, and their cause. The CGA’s most recent report from 2015 showed there were 288,346 known reported events of underground facility damage in North America – that is one every two minutes!

In addition, CGA tracks excavation method employed, and the leading cause of underground damage was backhoes and trenchers with over 40% of all damages.
 
Backhoe and trenchers are used more frequently for excavations and can be very destructive. However, the second leading cause of underground damage is hand tools, with over 26% of all known and reported utility damage.
