National 811 Day is a reminder to follow safe digging practices

AES Indiana reminds customers to call 811 before you dig

August 8, 2022

AES Indiana, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), reminds customers on National 811 Day to call 811 before you dig to help prevent injuries, property damage and utility outages. Whether you are a “do-it-yourself” homeowner or a contracted professional, before beginning late summer landscaping or home improvement projects, call 811 at least two full business days ahead of your scheduled start.

To ensure safety, you need to 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 state-wide 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.
