Whether you are putting up a new fence, planting a tree or installing a new sprinkler system, it is important for all Virginia Beach and other Hampton Roads cities to call Miss Utility of Virginia at 811 before you start digging. 

This number has been in place for awhile now and is part of a nationwide effort to streamline the call-before-you-dig system to avoid injuries and damage to underground utilities lines.

An 811 call alerts participating utilities of your plans.  The utilities will then send a representative to visit your property and mark the approximate location of their facilities.

This is a free service.  State law requires that you call 811 at least 2 business days before digging.
