Call OHIO811 to have utility lines marked

AES Ohio reminds customers April is National Safe Digging Month

April 4, 2024

AES Ohio, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), recognizes April is National Safe Digging Month and encourages all customers to understand the importance of digging in a safe, responsible way. Whether your project involves construction or planting a tree, put safety first and be sure to call OHIO811 or submit a dig notification request through OHIO811 at least 2 days ahead of your scheduled start.

With warmer days ahead, are you planning outdoor improvement projects or yard work?

To ensure safety, we want you to be sure to know where the electrical, gas and other utility lines are located on your property. Often electric lines are underground, so it is important to have these marked to steer clear of potential outages, repair costs and serious injuries. OHIO811 can provide support as they work to maintain the vast network of utility infrastructure. AES Ohio reminds customers to use the utmost caution, cooperation and patience as you plan and perform your work.

Ohio811 will notify affected utility companies, who will then send a professional locator to identify and mark the approximate location of lines within a few days of the call. If you do not complete your digging or construction project within 10 business days after the initial marking, you will need to call back to have the utility lines remarked for verification.
