New Jersey's One-Call Law
Do you garden and plan on planting new bushes or trees? Do you need to remove an old concrete patio to install pavers? Do you need to dig a well or a simple hole for a new mailbox post or flagpole? Are you raising an older home to make place for a new one? Well, whether you are a “do-it-yourselfer” or an “I’d rather hire a contractor” and have plans to excavate on your property, whether residential, commercial or industrial, your safety and that of others nearby requires that you CALL BEFORE YOU DIG.
As a matter of fact, it’s the law. Dial 8-1-1 or 1 (800) 272-1000 before you dig.
One of the primary objectives of NJUA's member companies is public safety.
The members of NJUA's Operations Committee participated in devising New Jersey's One Call Center and original "call before you dig" system. The "NJ One Call" system was conceived, designed and enhanced to help prevent accidents that could endanger the public and interrupt vital utility services.
