Dig Safely, You Dig?

This time of year, you may be doing some home improvements that involve digging, such as putting in new fence posts, drains, planting trees or shrubs, or major construction projects. The word from NYSEG is be careful where you dig to prevent injury or catastrophe.

Here’s more on the subject from our sister station, WIBX:

“Following several recent incidents involving damaged natural gas lines, NYSEG is reminding everyone to call “Dig Safely New York” before starting any construction.

Mark Lynch, president of NYSEG, said some people tend to underestimate the depth and placement of lines, and unintentionally damage the system.

“Something as seemingly harmless as a pick, a tent stake or a small excavator can cause serious damage to underground facilities,” Lynch said. “These facilities may be anywhere, and they are not always buried as deeply as one might think.”

Currently, contractors are required to call “Dig Safely New York” before digging, but regular customers are encouraged to dial 811, as well.”
