Only the person doing the actual digging is covered by the call so it is important that you, your contractor or sub-contractor call before you dig or excavate for your next project. Whether that’s planting a tree, digging a trench, building a house, etc. You are required to contact PA Dig or else you may be liable for damages should you hit or damage an underground utility feature.
For more information, view the Excavation Safety Guide issued by Pennsylvania811. The information provided in this publication is extensive and answers questions relating to excavation, violations, liability, etc.
