Utility Concerns

Before any digging can commence to install your new fence, the Utility Protection Service in Virginia and Maryland, commonly called Miss Utility, must be consulted to ensure that no underground utility lines will be disrupted during the dig. Miss Utility can be reached by dialing 811. After relating the project information, Miss Utility will come out, usually within three days, and mark the lines. The excavator will then be notified when it’s OK to dig.
