Calling 811 Before Digging is Your Responsibility – And it’s the Law.
One of the most common causes of pipeline damage is when a third-party digs, blasts or drills near a pipeline. If you plan to dig or do any type of excavation or construction work, federal and state law requires you to call your local state One-Call Center. A Vaquero representative will locate and mark the underground pipeline at no cost to you.
- Call 811 at least two business days before you start any excavation project.
- When you call, tell the operator where you plan to dig on your property.
What Happens When You Call 811:
The 811 One-Call Center will notify Vaquero – as well as any other utility company near your planned excavation. A Vaquero representative will come to your proposed excavation site, mark the location of our pipeline(s) and provide additional information if needed.
Your safety is important to us. Always call 811 before you dig.
