Important COVID-19 notice
If you’re planning to dig, or excavate in your yard—whether for planting a tree or shrub, or installing fence posts—please consider if your dig is necessary during the COVID-19 crisis. If you hit a gas line, our crews must attend to repair it and relight affected homes. Help us keep our physical distance—and keep crews and the public safe. Delay your dig if possible.
