Houston Utility Protection | Best Pick Reports

Before digging work can start in your yard, the Dig-Tess Center must be contacted at 800-DIG-TESS (800-344-8377) to locate and mark underground utility lines. Texas law requires most excavators to call Dig-Tess 48 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays) before they dig. The Dig-Tess service is free to both the homeowner and to the contractor. A reputable fencing contractor will not start digging until this is done.
