Non Dig-Safe Participating Utilities
In Maine, anyone using power tools to penetrate the ground (including homeowners) is required by law to notify DIGSAFE at 811 or 888.DIGSAFE at least 3 business days prior to digging. DIGSAFE will then notify the owners of underground facilities that are members of that system. However, not all owners of underground facilities are required to be members of the DIGSAFE system. Notify non-member facility owners as Non-member companies are not notified by DIGSAFE.
