Call Before Digging

I received the following as an email from a friend. It really makes you think before you undertake a job whether it be in an inner city or out in rural roads!


`You may or may not know about the law in the USA requiring you call for utility locating before you do any excavation. The pictures below are a result of a farmer using a post hole digger without calling for "locates," and he hit an underground, high-pressure cross-country gas pipe.

They never did find the guy……….took out 2 homes.

Hope it makes you think before you dig.....
