[ARCHIVED] April is National Safe Digging Month

April is National Safe Digging Month and a great time to remember to put safety first before starting any digging project. Whether a large-scale project or a simple do-it-yourself job, safety should always be the top priority. Utility lines that serve the community with vital services such as natural gas, electricity, cable, sewer and water can be buried anywhere. Striking a utility line not only poses a safety risk but can also cause an interruption of service to customers. The City of Winnemucca and Southwest Gas encourage homeowners and contractors to call 811 or go online at and click on your state at least two full working days prior to digging to request that utility-owned lines be located. You’ll then be connected to the appropriate one-call center for your area. Be safe and always know what’s below before digging!
