By EGP News Report
(EGPNews) – Southern California Edison is reminding its customers and the public to call 811 before starting any construction, home improvement or gardening projects that involve digging. Underground electric line can be dangerous or even fatal, cautioned SCE.
SCE advises calling the free 811 service at least two working days before beginning work on any project that requires digging, even planting trees or shrubs. A technician will be sent out to locate and mark where all underground public utility lines are buried at a work site or home.
