An 8/11 reminder: Call 811 before digging on your property

in News

GAHANNA, Ohio – AEP Ohio, an American Electric Power (Nasdaq: AEP) company, reminds customers to mark August 11 – or 8/11 – by remembering to call 811 before doing any digging on their property.

The phone call will start the process to have underground utility lines marked by an Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS) technician free of charge. Electric, gas, water, sewer and cable utilities use underground lines to deliver services to customers. Striking these lines can cause serious or fatal injuries, power outages and costly repairs. The location and depth of utility lines can vary due to erosion, uneven surfaces and previous digging projects.
