Don't be a statistic. Be smart and follow the law. Call 811 three business days before you dig. It's a free service!
If you are digging, or working near overhead electrical wires, Michigan State Law Public Act 53 of 1974
, requires that you call the MISS DIG System
at 811 or 800.482.7171 three (3) full working days before your work begins.
MISS DIG IS A FREE SERVICE! Lowell Light and Power is a participating utility member. MISS DIG notifies us where and when you will be working. We will mark our underground utility lines with paint and/or flags and insure adequate clearance of overhead electric lines. This is necessary so that you do not damage them and/or harm yourself. MISS DIG does not mark utilities; individual utilities mark their own.
In 2007, a national three-digit number, 811, was introduced to connect people directly to their state’s one-call system. To learn more, please visit call811.com
Lowell Light and Power locates underground utilities owned and maintained by Lowell Light and Power. These are located using red
markers. Parents: Please talk to your children about the importance of these flags and the protection of the utilities and utility workers. These flags should not be pulled out until the excavation is complete.
