Electric power lines are often buried underground. Please call Indiana Underground Plant Protection Service (IUPPS) at 800-382-5544 or 811 at least two working days before the start of the actual excavation.
It's your responsibility to notify IUPPS of any digging, whether it is a major excavation project or a simple project, such as installing a fence or mailbox. If IUPPS is not notified and damage is done to the underground lines, it will be your responsibility to pay for the cost of the repairs. A simple call to the IUPPS could save you costly damages and possibly even your life.
