Call Before You Dig

If you’re planning to dig near your home or business, remember that state law requires you call Indiana 811 at least two working days before you start. This service is offered to help you avoid underground utility lines and the serious injury as well as financial liabilities that could come from accidentally damaging these lines.

Indiana Underground Plant Protection Service (IUPPS) is a free, nonprofit, statewide utility notification service that provides a communication link between IUPPS members and contractors, homeowners, or anyone else engaged in excavating activities. When you call, please be ready to provide the following information:

  • The county and township where the excavation will take place
  • The address of the excavation site
  • The nearest cross street
  • A second cross street
  • Which city or town the excavation site is in or near
  • Where on the property the excavation will take place
