We need your help preventing damage to underground facilities. The most common cause of damage to underground facilities is when a third party unknowingly digs, blasts, or drills near an underground facility. If you plan to perform any excavation or construction work, state law requires you to place a location request with Dig Safely New York prior to doing so. You can place a location request by calling Dig Safely New York at 811, or by using our online Location Request program - Exactix.

Any excavation activity near an underground facility can potentially cause damage to that facility. Do your part and make sure the underground infrastructure has been marked. Contact Dig Safely New York before you dig. To read about Code Rule 753 in its entirety, please click here.
