Digging into underground electric lines can be expensive and can cause serious harm or even death. Anyone planning to dig in our service area should be aware of the lines and take proper action before digging begins.
We participate in the Ohio Utility Protection Service (OUPS), an organization that assists developers, contractors, homeowners and others in locating underground utility lines before digging. They should be contacted at least two business days before digging begins. They will notify the utilities listed in that area and inform you which utility companies to notify yourself. Simply call 8-1-1.
