Call Before You Dig!

Missouri law requires that a locate request be placed before beginning any excavation.  The utilities should respond to your  request within 3 working days by:

  • Marking the approximate location of their facilities or
  • Notifying you that they have no facilities in your dig site area.

After confirming utility response,  you can then proceed with your excavation avoiding damages.
