National Safe Digging Day

MIAMI VALLEY — AES Ohio, a subsidiary of the AES Corporation, wants to remind customers that Aug. 11 is National 811 Call before you dig day. They encourage all customers to put safety first and call 8-1-1 (800-362-2764) at least two full business days ahead of your scheduled start of any home projects that involve digging.

By simply calling OHIO811, you can notify Ohio’s one-call notification systems. The Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS) coordinates with local utilities to have underground lines marked, so you know ahead of time where it is safe to dig. Customers can also enter dig requests online with the OHIO811 e-dig ticket system at Submitting a ticket is easy, enter the location and a valid email address.
