Miss Utility

Contact Miss Utility of Virginia BEFORE YOU DIG!

State law requires that you call Miss Utility 48 hours before you begin any ground-disturbing activity.

For your safety and to minimize disruptions to utility services, you need to call Miss Utility to have any utility lines that might be in the area of your work marked so you can avoid damaging them or possibly injuring yourself. A representative from each utility company with service that might be affected by your work will mark the approximate location of their underground lines.

There Is No Charge for This Service!

Failure to notify Miss Utility before you dig could make you liable for the cost of any repairs should you damage a utility service.
