Just because you don’t have overhead power lines does not mean you don’t have to worry about electric safety outdoors. Some power lines are buried only about 18 inches underground. If you’re digging near an underground cable and breaking it, you could be electrocuted! In addition, you could have a troublesome power outage and you may be liable for a stiff fine if you failed to call about the location of possible underground utilities where you were digging.
Remember, save yourself a possible personal injury, job delay, and expense by calling before you dig. Don’t take chances. Call “Arkansas One-Call” at (800) 482-8998, at least 48 hours prior to excavating, and tell them where you plan to dig.
