AES Indiana, 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 811 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, 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 reminds customers to exercise social distancing and the utmost caution, cooperation and patience as you plan and perform your work.
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.
