Planning on digging?

Whether you are a homeowner planting a tree or a contractor preparing a foundation, it is the law to make the call to locate crude oil and natural gas transmission lines before digging. Lines can be found in both urban and rural areas and come surprisingly close to the surface.

The Ohio Oil and Gas Underground Protection Service is committed to protecting underground facilities and preserving the safety of landowners and contractors. By law, you must call 48 hours prior to digging so that any lines in your area can be located.
