Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
I want to dig a hole for a flag pole and mail box. It requires a concrete anchor and may be several feet deep. How do I find out where any underground utilities might be located so that I can avoid them?

ANSWER:
Before you dig anywhere, call DIG ALERT at least two days prior to beginning your work. Their telephone number is 1-800-227-2600. Mark the area you wish to dig. They will then notify each utility company within the area and have them mark the utilities in that area for you.

Although you don't need a permit from Public Works to place your mail box within the road right of way, you must get one to dig or place any thing else within the road right of way.
