Planning to do some digging in your yard or other area? Whether you're planting trees or preparing for a larger-scale project, it's critical to contact the Ohio Utility Protection Service to help you determine the location of underground utilities such as electric, gas, water, and sewer.
Hitting an underground utility line can cause serious personal injury and damage to the environment. Contact OUPS at (800) 362-2764 or by simply dialing 8-1-1. The appropriate OUPS representative will come to mark your underground utilities so you can safely proceed with your project. You should call at least 48 hours before starting to dig.
