Call Before You Dig

Many homes and businesses have a combination of underground utilities located in their yards, such as electricity, water, telephone and cable TV. The location of the utilities are very important when performing landscaping or digging in your yard or business. At Sheridan Electric, we locate our own underground power cables. To locate utility lines, all you need to do is make one call.

The call is free, easy and it only takes a few minutes. You will need to provide the following information:

  • Your name
  • Phone number
  • Proposed digging time and location
  • County, city, street address (or you may need to provide directions along with names of key roads and township if you are in a rural area.)
  • You will need to describe the type of work to be done and some detail as to where you are working on the site.
  • Best time to call you
  • Call at least 48 hours before you dig. You can be held liable for damage to underground equipment if you do not call before you dig!
