CALL BEFORE YOU DIG

Before you break ground for a project in and around your yard (i.e. installation of a fence, in-ground pool, home addition, flagpole, etc.) you must call New Jersey One Call at 811 or (800) 272-1000 to request a mark out of the utility services that are underground. You must call 3 days before you dig. The State of New Jersey requires that you call before you dig so that you can identify where the underground utilities are located (such as water, gas, electric, phone, cable, etc.). Once the services are "marked out", you can dig without the risk of interrupting service from one of these utilities, damaging property or suffering personal injury. If you are having a professional do the work for you, they are responsible to contact NJ One Call. For small excavations, please mark the area in white. This will allow for our personnel to determine where the mark out is needed.

Shorelands Water Company does not mark out the connecting pipe from the curb line up to the customer's premises. The connecting pipe is owned by and the responsibility of the customer. Please be aware that facilities exist that may not be marked out between these points.

Utility services are marked out with paint and/or a flag. PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE FLAGS! The following list will help you identify which utility has performed a specific mark out:

ELECTRIC - RED

GAS/OIL - YELLOW

COMMUNICATION TV - ORANGE

WATER - BLUE

SEWER - GREEN

TEMPORARY SURVEY MARKINGS - MAGENTA

PROPOSED EXCAVATION - WHITE

DIAL 811 BEFORE YOU DIG!
