AES Indiana, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), wants to remind customers that August 11 is National 811 Call before you dig day. We encourage all customers to put safety first and call 8-1-1 at least two full business days ahead of your scheduled start of any home projects that involve digging. Customers can also submit requests online via 811NOW.com.
To ensure safety, you want to be sure you know where electrical, gas and other utility lines are located on your property. Not only will doing so avoid headaches and make your job easier, but you will steer clear of potential utility outages, repair costs and serious or even fatal injuries.
AES Indiana is a member of the Indiana Underground Plant Protection Service (IUPPS), a free statewide service that will notify your utility companies to send representatives to the site and clearly mark the location of their underground lines and pipes. If you do not complete your digging or construction projects within 10 business days after the initial marking, you will need to call back to have the utility lines remarked for verification.
