Spring is here, and homeowners across the state are landscaping their yards.  Homeowners need to be aware that, by law, they must contact Missouri One Call System to place a locate request before digging. The Missouri One Call System is making it easier to place a locate request with Internet Ticketing or "ITIC".  ITIC allows homeowners to immediately place a locate request 24 hours a day on the internet and offers the advantage of speed and increased accuracy. No matter how small the job, when you plan to dig, you must notify Missouri One Call System at least two working days before you dig. Anyone planning to dig can use either the 1-800-DIG-RITE phone number or ITIC to place a locate request. Placing a locate request notifies the utilities of your dig site.  Member utilities will then mark their lines allowing you to dig safely. Not notifying Missouri One Call before you dig can cause injury, interrupted service and can result in expensive repairs.  You don't know what's buried underground, so it's important to call 1-800-344-7483 or use ITIC at least two working days before you dig. To use ITIC, go to the Missouri One Call website and select "Homeowners".  The process is quick and simple. Remember to always place a locate request before digging, wait the required amount of time, respect the marks, and dig with care.
