Protect Pipelines and Your Land
Farm and ranch equipment is a common source of pipeline damage.
Never guess where a pipeline is located or how deep it is below the surface of the ground. Even if you know the general location of the pipeline, the ground above the pipeline may have changed due to erosion or grading.
Call Before You Dig
Always call 811 to have pipelines and underground utilities marked before you plow, till, terrace, sub-soil, install a fence or initiate any deep excavation activity.
This free service may or may not require a pipeline representative to visit you at your farm or ranch. If a visit is required, someone from Explorer will contact you to schedule a time to meet.
Once lines are marked, carefully hand dig in the proximity of the pipeline to verify the actual location and depth.
