When you are doing a bit of the family do it yourself handy work or hiring a company for yourself or a managed property some great steps to follow are:
CALL 811 any one of Texas One call centers before you dig. Give two to three days before doing any projects. This includes farming ,gardening,landscaping fencing and any small or large construction project.
STOP and wait for any pipelines that will be there to be marked for you. The line will be marked with paint and or flags or flagstone before your digging begins.
EXCAVATE OR DIG with with care. Even after the marking please do take care to dig near the site that was marked especially for you and your project. At times projects are larger than expected or pipelines move slightly with rains or ground shifting. Please do take reasonable and necessary care. CALL AGAIN IF NEEDED
