Today is used as reminder for Wisconsinites to call Diggers' Hotline

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Today is 8/11.

811 is also the number to call for Diggers' Hotline. The Wisconsin Public Service utility is using the date to remind people to "call before they dig," to make sure their projects don't run into underground utility lines.

Todd Steffen of Public Service says lots of people assume that the statewide Digger's Hotline is for larger projects.

Actually, many utility lines are cut by folks doing smaller projects at home.

Steffen says they can cause injuries, major expenses, and other problems for both residents and their neighbors by not calling.
