Yes! Any digging requires contacting 811, either by calling 811 or making your request through AL811.com
Planting a garden? Installing a fence or mailbox? You must contact 811.
When you dial 811, you will automatically be connected to an Alabama 811 contact center representative who will ask you simple questions about the location and details of your digging project. If you make your request online, you will enter the same information into a form. Either way, you will receive a ticket number and instructions for how much time utilities have to respond to your request, as well as how to confirm that all utilities have responded before you can safely dig.
Don’t make a judgment call – make the call (or online request) to 811 every time you dig.
