Call Gopher State One

Before you dig, call Gopher State at 1-800-252-1166. They will contact all area utilities to determine the locations of utility owned underground cables, lines and pipes. Keep in mind that only utility owned lines will be marked, so customers need to be cautious of any customer owned underground electric or gas lines that may be located between their meter pole and house.
