BEFORE YOU DIG - Calling 811 is the most important step!

In the State of Connecticut, it is the law to contact CBYD prior to any excavation involving mechanized or powered equipment. The laws and regulations regarding excavation are in place to protect utility assets, but most importantly to protect the people excavating. Connecticut’s “Call Before You Dig” (CBYD) program is effective, FREE and the law. Be responsible and contact CBYD for the safety of the community, the safety of the local utilities and your own safety!
