Call Before You Dig
It's FREE. It's Easy. It's your Responsibility...It's the LAW!
Call Before You Dig is a free service that locates your primary underground utilities.
The State of Texas Underground Facility Damage Prevention and Safety Act states that
anyone who plans to disturb soil to a depth of 16 or more inches must contact a One-Call
notification center before proceeding with work.
Karnes Electric Cooperative, Inc. is a member of the Texas Excavation Safety System
One- Call Center. Call 811 or toll free (800) DIG-TESS or (800) 344-8377. Operators are on
duty 24-hours a day, seven days a week (excluding legal holidays). You may call up to 14
business days before excavating, but no later than two business days (48 hours excluding
