If you're planning on doing some digging as part of yard work this weekend, you should call 811 first.
Bob Innes with Columbia Gas says it doesn't take long for them to come out and it's free. Once the layout of where all those important wires is done, take a picture and some measurements, so the next time you dig you have a better idea where everything else is. Cut lines and wires can be dangerous, cost you some headaches with lost services and maybe lots of money to fix.
