Or, contact Dig Safe®, a not-for-profit clearinghouse that notifies participating utility companies of your plans to dig. In turn, these utilities (or their contract locating companies) respond to mark out the location of their underground facilities. Dial 811 or visit www.digsafe.com.
Rhode Island law requires you to give at least 72 hours of notice, not including weekends and legal holidays.
