Digging in the Yard - Atlanta Plumbing Tips by Home Reports

Many plumbing repairs, including replacing the main sewer line or the main water supply line, can require digging a trench through your yard. Every homeowner should clarify with their Atlanta plumbing contractor, preferably in writing, the condition their yard will be in once work is complete. Don't be one of the many homeowners who are unhappily surprised at their yard's condition after the work is done.

Also, before any digging commences, call the Utilities Protection Center at 770-623-4344 to locate and mark underground utility lines. Begin digging within 72 hours of your call, excluding weekends and holidays. Until the utilities mark their lines, the plumbing company cannot start digging.
