Be extra careful when building fences or doing any other work around your house that requires digging or excavating.
Oregon law requires that everyone call the (OUNC) Oregon Utility Notification Center for utility locates anytime they are digging within a public right of way or utility easement, or if the depth of the planned excavation is more than 12 inches.
Contractors must always call before they dig.
Visit the OUNC website or call 1-800-332-2344.
The OUNC will notify affected utilities, which then have two business days to locate and accurately mark their underground facilities using color-coded paint. This is a free service.
