Atmos Wants to Remind You to Call 811

Atmos Energy wants to remind you on August 11th that there is a safe and effective way to protect yourself and your property from damaged lines – by calling 811.

8/11 serves as an annual reminder for individuals to contact 811 and have underground utility-owned lines located and marked before any digging project starts.

811 connects homeowners and contractors to a local call center that notifies utility companies of the intent to dig, and then sends professionals to mark lines with paint or flags.

Striking an underground utility line such as a natural gas pipeline can lead to serious injury or repair costs, so avoid the hassle and call the right people.

Atmos also invites you to sign their Call 811 Pledge, which can be found here.

For more information about 811 or when you should contact them, visit their website.
