Dial 811 for Underground Power Line Location

Each month we print a statement in this newsletter reminding you to “Dial before you dig”. This is so we can mark our underground lines to prevent you from striking them. Albemarle EMC joined North Carolina 811 effective May 1. What this means is that instead of calling us two business days before you dig, you must now dial 811 or 1-800-632-4949. NC811 will answer your call, get your locate information and then transmit it to us and the other utilities in your area. We will still mark our underground lines within 48 hours, for free. This call is mandatory. It will protect the person digging or excavating from unintentionally striking a utility line and causing inconvenient outages, having to pay for repairs, and most importantly, from causing harm to themselves or someone else. Don’t forget…call 811 or 1-800-632-4949 to request that underground utilities be marked before you start digging!
