National 811 Day is a reminder to always call 8-1-1 before digging
IPL reminds Hoosiers to follow safe digging practices
August 9, 2018
Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL), a subsidiary of The AES
Corporation (NYSE: AES), wants to remind customers that this Saturday is
National 811 Day, and we encourage all customers to put safety first and call
8-1-1 at least two full business days ahead of your scheduled start date. To
ensure safety, you’ll need to know where electrical, gas, and other utility
lines are located on your property. Not only will doing so avoid headaches and
make your job easier, but you will steer clear of potential utility outages,
repair costs, and serious or sometimes even fatal injuries.
IPL is a member of the Indiana
Utility Underground Plant Protection Service, a free state-wide service that
will notify your utility companies to send representatives to the site and
clearly mark the location of their underground lines and pipes. If you do not
complete your digging or construction projects within 10 business days after
the initial marking, you will need to call back to have the utility lines
marked for verification.

smart with the utilities in mind.
