Why Call Diggers Hotline?
• It's The Law. Wisconsin Statute 182.0175 requires all excavators - including homeowners and construction contractors - to call Diggers Hotline at least three working days before starting the work.
• Protect Yourself. If you don't call before you dig, you are putting yourself and your neighbors in danger. A shovel could easily cut through a buried underground electric line, and a damaged gas pipeline would put your entire neighborhood in jeopardy.
• Dig Now, Pay Later. If you dig without calling Diggers Hotline and you damage underground facilities, not only will you be financially responsible for the damage, but you could also be subject to a fine of up to $2,000.
