Before You Dig
Before starting any construction project, find the plot plan or survey drawing in the papers that you received when you bought your home. Be sure you do not build over any utility easements or setback lines. You must call 8-1-1 or (800) 344-8377 or (800)-DIG-TESS before digging anywhere on your property. The service is free and will relieve you of responsibility for any damage that may occur.
