Do you have projects this spring or summer requiring digging in your yard? Before you dig, be sure to include the most important step in your project plans: IOWA ONE CALL. Iowa One Call services are FREE and telephones are answered 24 hours a day. Utilities, including Des Moines Water Works, have 48 hours after you request to locate any underground facilities they have in the area and mark their location with flags or painted lines. After the excavation area is marked, you will be able to avoid any underground services, preventing a loss of vital services and added expenses for repairs.
Simply call 811 before you dig. It’s fast, it’s free, it’s the law! You can also access important information at www.iowaonecall.com.
