OUNC works with Governor to proclaim April, 2011 Safe Digging Month
As part of the national effort to raise awareness of safe digging practices, and encourage the use of 811 to request locates of underground facilities. The Oregon Utility Notification Center (OUNC) board of directors worked with Governor Kitzhaber to issue a proclamation naming April 2011 “Oregon Safe Digging Month”. In the proclamation the Governor has asked people to call 811 at least two business days before digging to insure all essential underground utilities are located before excavating.
The board would like to thank the Governor for his support and hopes everyone will use the free call to 811 prior to starting any digging project.
